About the Designer
Michael Graves 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.

The 9093 Kettle with Bird Whistle became a household favorite throughout the world from the very beginning (1985). This sole design has sold the greatest number of units in the entire history of Alessi, and, furthermore, it has been cited in numerous design manuals as one of the ''most influential objects of the post-modern style.'' It is considered a forerunner to designs of today that incorporate a very ''playful'' approach. The classic Michael Graves kettle just isn't the same without the bird whistle. Return your kettle to true form with replacement birds for the 9093 kettle by Michael Graves.

  • Replacement whistle for the 9093 kettle by Michael Graves for Alessi

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.

Whistle color

 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.
