9091 Kettle, Richard Sapper

Alessi

ALE 9091

"Subverting the anxiety-inducing noise produced by typical kettles, Sapper's 1983 design includes a brass whistle that emanates a harmonic pitch." - Dwell

The 9091 was Alessi's first designer kettle, ushering in a long and successful tradition. The central element in the design is the brass whistle which, when the steam exits, produces a short and pleasant melody. Richard Sapper wanted to avoid the usual anxiety-generating noise produced by other kettles then on the market, and by following this exquisitely poetic philosophy he produced what is probably the first multisensory object for the kitchen.
