OSSIDIANA
BY MARIO TRIMARCHI
FOR ALESSI
A neo-primitive style coffee maker created
from memories and fragments of images related
through its shape with sharply-cut areas that seem
carved in polished aluminium so as to give the body of
the coffeemaker particular plays of light, reflections and
shadows. The product embodies the memory of the
multi-faced format of the traditional coffee maker and
the volcanic stone of the same name. The asymmetric
and discontinuous geometry, as well as giving the
object a strong sculptural value, also improves the
ergonomics, making the volume consistent with the shape
of the hand and ensuring an easy grip during the operations
of opening and closing. The lid has a tab inside that collects
condensed liquid and directs it back inside the collecting
chamber instead of outside and the handle and knob are
made of black thermoplastic resin.
