Italy - 1980-1989 - Copper, Steel (stainless)

18/10 polished stainless steel espresso coffee maker, with copper base, made by Officina Alessi, code number 90002, six cups.
'La Conica', the first project of an espresso coffee maker made by the architect Aldo Rossi, comes from a mix of simple geometrical shapes forming a miniature architecture for the table, concise and elegant style. Timeless icon, La Conica's body is made of stainless steel and its base in in copper. A refined item, made of minimal geometric lines giving life to a functional item for preparing and serving coffee.
Aldo Rossi is seen as the playwright of abstraction, reduction and brevity, with his rigorous language of basic shapes, geometry and evocation by absence, he managed to create some of the most poetical works of architecture and design of his time.
New, never used, never made a coffee, used to be displayed, with some lines in some areas and small stains of foxing between the steel and copper, easily fixable, please look carefully at the photos that are an integral part of the description, thanks.
