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.

Great, but we've replaced bird twice

 from Highland Park, IL

We use the Graves tea kettle every morning, and love the look and feel. However, we've replaced the bird twice in 23-plus years. It just wears out. May be the convenient plastic material, but it would last longer in brass. When the last one broke, we stumbled along for a week piecing it together. My wife even suggested replacing the pot, but I really like the Graves design. [...] order two replacement whistles this time. This pot will last us the rest of our coffee-drinking lives.

Just What I Was Looking For!

 from Maryland

[...] Thanks again!

Was this helpful? Yes / No


 from New York, NY– Verified Buyer

After movers broke my bird whistle, I was ecstatic to learn I could salvage my expensive Alessi teakettle for just a few dollars. This is the second one that broke, though, so my only negative comment is that the design must be a bit fragile. Still, those two broken whistles were spaced out of 23 years!
