offered in a second, more compact version, the new variant of alessi‘s plissé electric kettle is suitable for small families or hotel use. produced in thermoplastic resin and proposed in four colors, plissé has been designed with a few expedients that simplify its use and highlight its versatility: a safety device cuts off the power supply if there is too little or no water in the kettle, the base of the kettle is thermally insulated, so even once the water has reached boiling point, it can be safely placed on any surface. emphasizing its practicality, the kettle is easy to open and close, can be rapidly removed from its hidden base, comes with an internal indicator of the maximum water level, an anti-limescale filter, and switches off automatically.

‘with the skillful and creative use of pleating, fashion designers shape fabrics and create clothes like sculptural works of art,’ notes italian architect and designer, michele de lucchi. ‘“plissé” was formed starting from a folded sheet of paper, then developed and produced by alessi as if it were a beautiful sartorial object. the folds give form to the shape, they structure it, because a form without folds is only a volume without form. the folds transform simple two-dimensional sheets into three-dimensional objects.’alessi presents liter-capacity version of michele de lucchi's 'plissé' electric kettle alessi presents liter-capacity version of michele de lucchi's 'plissé' electric kettle
