About the Designer
Michael Graves United States (1934 - )
Michael Graves is an influential architect and designer. He studied at Harvard University and taught at Princeton University while designing private houses in the abstract and austere style of orthodox Modernism. However, in the late 1970's he rejected this Modernist expression and began seeking a larger, Post-modernist vocabulary. The hulking masses of the Portland Building and the Humana Building both display his highly personal, Cubist new rendering of such Classical elements as colonnades and loggias. Though sometimes considered somewhat awkward, these and his later buildings, such as the Indianapolis Art Center, have been acclaimed for their ironic interpretation of traditional forms. It is this sensibility that has projected Graves to a star among designers, as can be seen in his many designs for Alessi that clearly depict a "new Americana," such as the best selling 9093 Kettle.
Needed a new bird!
ES from Debary, FL – Verified Buyer
The original bird didn't last very long (I make a lot of tea). I waited for a long time to reorder. Then I recently nearly burnt the house down when the kettle boiled the water away while I forgot about it. Now I have a new bird - it fits very tightly and is a little hard to pull out of the spout, but it whistles LOUDLY!
Alessi Teapot Owners Rejoice!
Linda from Cardiff By The Sea, CA
This was exactly what I needed....I was so glad to find it and the price was so reasonable. Great find is you own this teapot!
Ira from Haverford, PA – Verified Buyer
After I melted my plastic whistle I was going to just buy a new tea pot. My son suggested to buy a new whistle. It came in a 3 pack so I assume other people have melted the bird too. Now I have 2 spares and love my tea pot again.
Burgundy Bird Whistle
Susan from Haverhill, MA – Verified Buyer
The Michael Graves kettle is gorgeous. The bird whistle is small and, regrettably, easily "misplaced". I was thrilled to be able to replace mine, restoring the kettle to its original beauty.
Cindy from Springdale, AR – Verified Buyer
I love the tea kettle and the bird whistle, but I wish the red bird was a little redder. It was more of a burgundy red. Still beautiful.
Anna from Washington, DC – Verified Buyer
I have the Alessi kettle and this whistle is so cute and makes the kettle special. I bought this as an extra in case I or someone else lose the one it came with, so I have an extra immediately.
