9091 Water Kettle

$300

Manufactured by Alessi, this stainless steel kettle has become the brand’s first multi-sensory design—warming tastebuds and stimulating eardrums. Unlike the ear-piercing screams of other kettles, this classic 1983 kettle by Richard Sapper produces a delightful melody when water reaches a boil—thanks to a brass whistle that sings two notes: “mi” and “si.” Its simple, notched handle also makes it a pleasure to pour.
