Alessi Electric Kettle Plisse Black
Alessi Electric Kettle Plisse Black – An haute couture accessory… Plissé is an electric kettle made from thermoplastic resin which is characterised by pretty folds which give it a particularly chic form. According to Michele De Lucchi, who designed Plissé, “A form with no folds is just a volume without form”. Coming from a very ancient technique, this folding method applied to this kettle is undeniably similar to the one that you can find on haute couture clothes. Elegant down to the smallest details, Plissé is available in wonderful colours and its power supply base has been hidden inside of the kettle. This very practical kettle also has a thermally insulated base, which allows it to be placed directly on any surface.
