Alessi Bird Whistle for Michael Graves 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.

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.

About the Manufacturer

Alessi's intention, from the beginning, was to be highly innovative and ready to experiment with cookware. With this in mind, the Alessi family venture explored new materials and novel design in becoming one of the finest and most well-known contemporary cookware brands. Alessi prides itself on its unique collaboration with designers and architects to produce beautiful, quality cookware. Among some of the best known of the Alessi's products are Richard Sapper's kettle with a two-tone whistle, Michael Graves' kettle with bird shaped whistle, and Philippe Starck's Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.

Needed a new bird!

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!

Great deal

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

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.

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.
