The 9091 kettle has a melodic whistle made of brass in a shape that has never been seen before and consisting of two small vents in which the tuners that reproduce the notes mi and si are inserted. Richard Sapper created this kettle inspired by a childhood remembrance, the poetic sound of boats' sirens at River Rhine: this is because the melody that accompanies the vapour outlet must be pleasant and not anxious like the whistle of boilers. This kettle is a polysensory object which will not interrupt an enjoyable break with a whistle, but with a captivating melody.
Kettle in stainless steel mirror polished with melodic whistle in brass and handle in PA, black. Magnetic steel heat diffusing bottom. This kettle was our first designer kettle, heralding a new season of kettle ideas for ourselves as well as many other kettle manufacturers. The true heart of this design is the brass whistle whose pipes sing two notes, mi and si, when the steam blows through them, giving a particularly attractive melody. Sapper wanted to avoid giving the kettles whistle the usual irksome sound of the other kettles on the market. And this purely musical requirement led to what I think can be described as Alessi's first multi-sensorial design
