Iconic espresso machine with extraordinary handle
The 9090 espresso machine by designer Richard Sapper for Alessi was the first espresso machine from Alessi at the time and is now a classic from the Italian company. In the 9090 manico forato version by Alessi the iconic espresso maker presents itself with a never before produced perforated handle for better heat conduction.
Orange is the only color that appears in Richard Sapper's objects and has the purpose of highlighting the movable and central elements of his designs; as in the movable handle of this coffee maker, which hides an innovative locking system. The 9090 espresso machine is not only a practical kitchen appliance, but can also be placed directly on the coffee table thanks to its high-quality design.
With the 9090 espresso machine, Alessi won the Compasso D'Oro design award for the first time in the company's history in 1979. In addition, the 9090 was the first object from Alessi to be included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
9090 is made of stainless steel. The espresso machine is suitable for use on all types of stove.
