Founded in 1921 Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products. In almost a century of history, the company has gradually evolved to become one of the leading “Factories of Italian design”, capable of applying its expertise and excellence in design management to many different product types. Open to change and international development, Alessi at the same time has a strong bond with the traditions and cultural background of its area and continues to be synonymous with handcrafted objects produced with the help of machines.
Alessi’s mission is now one of translating its quest for the most advanced cultural, aesthetic, design and functional quality into mass production. Designer products are the result of the constant reconciliation of art and industry, of the “Immensity of Creative Potential” and the needs of the market. The company is committed to a design approach in which the most advanced expression of international creativity is always balanced against the desires of the general public. Alessi has been described as a “Dream Factory”, which uses its products to make people’s dreams come true, providing them with the Art and Poetry that they seek.
The Plissé Electric Kettle excels the most through its design. It's very name declares the sculptural nature of its design: pleated fabric, this kettle is reminiscent of an haute couture dress.
Designed by Michele De Lucchi, the Plissé kettle combines functional aspects with a plastic and imaginative design that reveals the creator's passion for architecture, handicraft and sculpture. The sculptural folds of the Plissé adds a subtle sophistication, a softness and a feminine curve to your kitchen. It sits on a discreet hidden base, features thermal insulation (so it can be placed on a bench straight after boiling), and is equipped with an anti-limescale filter.
