Designer: David Chipperfield
Alessi unveils their new ‘moka’ coffee maker, designed by british architect david chipperfield, that will be presented at 2019’s salone del mobile in milan. the moka was first created in the 1930’s by alfonso bialetti – the maternal grandfather of alberto alessi. since then it has become an iconic object within many households and synonymous with classic italian design. this interpretation envisioned by chipperfield retains the character of the traditional espresso maker, with only the most subtle of design interventions applied.
Unlike the traditional moka, chipperfield‘s redesign of the style icon for alessi incorporates eleven sides and a flat lid. the two extra faces have been added to the volume in an effort to ‘make the geometry stronger, to better integrate the proportions and to insert the spout, which is part of one of the facets,’ chipperfield comments. the new form has also been created with a more curved bottom to the base of the object.
