A revolutionary and modern espresso machine that combines the coffee-perfecting technology developed by illycaffè and the design experience of Alessi.
Designed by architectural visionary Michele de Lucchi, the Pulcina Espresso Coffee Maker encapsulates a small but substantial design innovation that stops dispensing the drink at the right time before the coffee gets a bitter aftertaste. This helps to enhance the full and rich aroma of your espresso. The spout, which recalls a chick's beak (hence the name of the coffee maker - "pulcina" = "chick") allows it to perfectly stop the drop.
Capacity 3 Cups.
The products Alessi made were some of the first design items I came across when I was still at primary school and probably many of us growing up in the 90's. Interacting with them widened my perspective to how playful everyday objects and interactions could become, they showed me a new way to approach life not only design, to find the beauty in the smallest details and to create moments of joy through the smallest touch points. This is something we are still students of at HATO and still pursue.
