Electric kettle in thermoplastic resin
Echoes from the worlds of architecture, design and fashion are embedded into the details of the new project by Michele De Lucchi for Alessi. "Plissé" - this product's very name declares the sculptural nature of its design: like a fabric that a thick pleating transforms into a three-dimensional shape, this kettle is reminiscent of an haute couture dress, a beautiful object sculpted by a fashion designer. Produced in thermoplastic resin and proposed in four colours – red, grey, white and matt black - “Plissé” reveals a few expedients that simplify its use: 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 placed safely on any surface. The kettle is easy to open and close, can be rapidly removed from its hidden base and is equipped with an anti-limescale filter.
Available in white, grey, red and black.
