Invented in the early 1900s, the espresso coffee maker revolutionised how coffee is made and the Moka, designed by architect David Chipperfield for Alessi, is a modern interpretation of this timeless kitchen staple.
The eleven-sided construction keeps the form familiar as a coffee pot, but with a new and different feeling. The lid is deliberately flat, creating a surface for resting and warming cups whilst the coffee brews. The valve, made from brass, is equally reliable and high-performing as the most modern stainless steel parts.
The nod back to early espresso coffee makers is even seen in the packaging, whose 30s style graphics are brought up to date in a fun, contemporary colour palette.

Alessi draws inspiration from Italian industrial culture to create unique, contemporary products. Collaborating with over 500 designers around the globe, Alessi believes that “a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories…”
Born in Granerolo, Verbania, in 1916, Carlo Alessi studied technical design at the OMAR institute in Novara. At an early age, he worked in the metal workshop set up by his father, Giovanni, in 1921. In the fifties, he became managing director of the company, introducing a new international dimension, which he developed by working with external designers. He remained president of Alessi until 2009, when he passed away.
Alessi is now a B Corp, a company which strives to maximise the positive impact they have on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, by using the business as a force for regeneration and sustainability.More from Alessi
