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.

With meticulous attention to the intricacies of the shape and materials used to make the original, Alessi has reproduced the 9093 Signature 67oz Kettle with Bird Whistle in miniature form. 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.
