Stylish Teatime

“While there are a number of factors to consider when shopping for the perfect kettle, such as spout type, overall size, and choosing electric or stovetop, the importance of finding a kettle that fits your home’s aesthetic shouldn’t be underestimated,” says Kiyomi Higuchi, Product Manager – Home, at The Museum of Modern Art. “As a frequently used product, a kettle typically stays on-display in the home and should complement the kitchen where it lives. The Alessi Michael Graves 9093 Kettle is a perfect example of how a well-designed everyday object can combine form and function to delight our senses, bring joy into our lives and ultimately improve our daily routines through good design.”

Alessi Michael Graves 9093 Kettle
Originally debuted in 1985, this is one of the best-selling Alessi designs in the world. It’s distinguished by its contrast of materials — mirror-polished stainless steel, a blue plastic handle, rivet details near the bottom, and the iconic bird-shaped whistle that sings when your water has reached a boil.
