Designed by the architect David Chipperfield, "Moka" is a tribute to Italy's favourite espresso coffee maker and its inventor, Alfonso Bialetti, Alberto Alessi's maternal grandfather. Invented in the early 1900s, the first espresso coffee maker revolutionised the way coffee was made.
With Moka, Alessi offers an original interpretation of a timeless icon, created by Chipperfield with the aim of it becoming a popular, simple, familiar object just like the first espresso coffee maker invented at the beginning of the last century.
An eleven-sided volume for a familiar and at the same time innovative form: Chipperfield works on a series of details that make the design of Moka something unprecedented and, at the same time, introduce improvements in functionality. The flat lid, for example, serves as a surface for resting and warming cups during coffee preparation - for enhanced appreciation of the aroma and flavour of the drink - while the knob position allows for easy, one-handed lid lifting.
To give visual continuity to the shape of the coffee maker, the designer has chosen grey for the handle, with a shade that is the transposition of the metallic colour of the aluminum. The brass valve is a tribute to tradition, equally as reliable and high-performing as the most modern stainless steel components.
