Alessi’s La conica espresso coffee maker, designed by Italian architect Aldo Rossi in the 1980s, is sure to make a statement in the kitchen and any table setting. La conica's elegant appearance is a combination of three geometric elements: a sphere, a cone and a cylinder. The name La conica refers to the conical lid. The 3-cup La conica espresso coffee maker is made from stainless steel.

The Alessi Values Collection was launched to celebrate the centennial of the famous Italian design house. The sixth part of the collection is called Research Lab, which refers to the more experimental side of industrial design – Alessi is like a research center where designers can do their experiments. One of these experiments is a version of Rossi's iconic espresso maker with an elongated handle; this was actually Rossi's first version of the design.

Aldo Rossi

Aldo Rossi (1931–1997) is one of the most acclaimed Italian architects of the second half of the 20th century. One of his best-known works is the cemetery in Modena, Italy, which Rossi designed in 1971. The cemetery's buildings – like many of Rossi’s other works – exhibit the strong colours, clear geometry, and ironical historical references typical of postmodernism, but Rossi himself claimed he was not part of the movement. “I cannot be postmodern, as I have never been modern,” he is said to have said.

Born in Milan, Rossi graduated as an architect from the Politecnico di Milano in 1959. During his long career he became known not only as an architect, but also as an artist and theorist who toured the world teaching in Milan, Venice, and many U.S. top universities. Rossi was also the first Italian architect to be awarded the prestigious Pritzker Prize.
