Let's just say that design - of this kind of design - is perhaps the best dimension of Aldo Rossi's work. Years later we can safely say that seeing buildings, generally large and colorful, shaped like kettles, was rather curious. And yet, Rossi is undoubtedly one of the greatest Italian architects of the second half of the twentieth century. The postmodern project, of which Rossi is a forerunner, opposes functionalism and utilitarianism, proposing a return to ornamentation, hedonism. , implemented by mixing the classic and the vernacular, the corrective and simple language, but with an immediate aesthetic impact. Pleasing and sometimes vaguely winking. Rossi worked from the past, mindful that nothing is more modern, current and desirable than the forms of the past, especially if forgotten and repeated. But his "classic" is like cardboard. Its architecture is a sort of scenography: it has never been completely convinced of how real it can be. Pure shapes are used everywhere, with a repetitiveness that makes Rossi immediately recognizable, and they almost seem to have been salvaged from an ancient pocket of games, like old colored wooden buildings. And here these shapes, in design, become even simpler and pure. This Conical kettle, part of a vast collection created by the Masters of the Modern Post for Alessi: Michael Graves, Frank Gehry, Richard Sapper, among others, is among the more emblematic for the courageous formal simplicity, reduced precisely to the pure form of a cone. The cone is a form repeatedly adopted by Rossi, both in design objects and in architecture. Archetypal form of the roof but at the same time a penetrating symbol of approach to the sky. The conical shape in stainless steel is particularly suitable for incorporating the heat from the base, without dispersing even a little and allowing the water to boil in record time. Functionality not to be underestimated, for a kettle.Il Conico is undoubtedly an icon of abstraction, reduction, brevitas and the rigorous language that has characterized all the poetic production of Aldo Rossi. A small masterpiece in the pans of your kitchen.

Aldo Rossi
Born in Milan (1931-1997), he is considered by many to be the greatest Italian architect of the second half of the 20th century. His life as an architect started with Gardella and Zanuso. An author of abstraction, reduction and brevitas, his severe language of primary shapes, geometrical patterns and silent evocation created some of the most intensely poetic works of architecture and design in his age.
