The famous kettle with the little bird that starts to whistle as soon as the water boils has been an enduring success since 1985 and represents for Alessi a meeting of great design and large-scale production. The signature of designer Michael Graves is clearly visible in the iconic kettle, in which influences ranging from Art Nouveau and Pop Art to the design language of comics can be found. The famous kettle has even made guest appearances in numerous Hollywood films.
