The regular retail price would be £115 + shipping fees, so approximately £135-140.

DESIGN HISTORY

The 9090 isn't just the first espresso coffee maker in Alessi's history: it was also Alessi's first object for the kitchen after the 1930s, the first of Alessi's many Compasso d'Oro awards (1979), Alessi's first object to be inducted into the Permanent Design Collection at the New York MOMA.

Of course it's the best-loved Alessi coffee maker, as well as Alessi's first "amphibious object", i.e. it is for kitchen use, but with its high design quality it can also be brought directly to the table.

WHAT BLOGGERS SAY

Must-Watch Vimeo interview of Alberto Alessi thanks to Dezeen:

"This rocket-shaped stove-top coffee maker was designed in 1979 by the late Richard Sapper for Italian brand Alessi. Unlike the traditional coffee maker, Sapper's version opens and closes with a lever action rather than a screw."

Richard Sapper's espresso maker is an "homage to my grandfather" says Alberto Alessi:

"I consider it a homage to my grandfather, that is the father of my mother, Mr Alfonso Bialetti," he says. "He was the inventor, designer and producer of the first Italian espresso maker - the very popular cast-aluminium, inexpensive Italian espresso maker."
