OSSIDIANA moka, Alessi
Design: Mario Trimarchi
"Fully aware of an object’s narrative ability, Sicilian architect
Mario Trimarchi has designed the “Ossidiana” espresso coffee
maker. Like his other projects, this one is based on memories
and fragments of images, told through the form of an article.
“Ossidiana” embraces the memory of the various sides of the
traditional moka coffee pot and those of obsidian, the volcanic
stone it is named after. "
