Alessi has introduced the Plissé electric water kettle, which is designed by Michele De Lucchi.
The name of the kettle describes the sculptural nature of its design, like a fabric where a thick pleating transforms into a three-dimensional shape, the company noted.
The kettle is made of thermoplastic resin and combines De Lucchi’s architectural background with his passion for handicraft and sculpture. The power supply base is hidden in the bottom of the kettle body. On the lever switch, a light indicates when the water heater is active. Inside the spout, a filter collects any limestone particles formed inside the kettle. The filter can be removed, rinsed under running water and placed back in the spout. The base of the kettle is thermally insulated, so it can be placed safely on any surface.
The Plissé electric water kettle in matte black will be available in early 2020.
