Alessi president Alberto Alessi says that Aldo Rossi's La Conica espresso maker defies the idea that form should follow function.
Details: Designed between 1980 and 1983, this coffee maker began life as an evolution of the "Tea&Coffee Piazza" project, which saw famous architects taking up the challenge of designing a tea and coffee service. It was Rossi's first mass-produced design, and its strongly iconic image earned it immediate success for the then-new Officina Alessi brand, as well as becoming an 1980s design symbol.
