From Alessi With Love

VIVA ITALIA It’s that time again, winter is here and thoughts turn to travel. Come take a journey with us- to our favourite destinations- through the objects of our desire.

Today, you’re in Italy, just north of Milan, where our love affair with Alessi continues to grow. Can you smell the espresso? The dream of Carlo Alessi, founder (craftsman) started in Crusinallo where he began the tradition of coffee makers and tea sets with his own creation, Bombe. Since 1945, the same atelier is still producing many of the items that line our walls. Here are some of our top picks- lovingly made in Italy.


“Thanks to the internal shape of its special heater, Pulcina automatically stops filtering the coffee at the right moment.” Michele Di Lucci

One of our newest arrivals sold out before it had a chance to sit on a shelf. The Pulcina is now back on our Alessi wall and ready to be in your life.


Joy. Like a Jewel. A Pleasure!” Claudia Raimondo

“Aldo Rossi is a poet who happens to be an architect.”

The conical shapes of Il Conico (espresso maker) and La Conica (tea kettle) are present in all the work of this Pritzker prize winning architect.
