The 9090 Espresso Maker is not only the first espresso coffee maker in Alessi's history, but also the first of several Compasso d'Oro awards and the first Alessi item exhibited at the MOMA in New York. Richard Sapper described his initial goal for the design as "to give this machinery the features that others do not have." This piece is original not only for its special shape but also for some functional innovations such as the enlarged base that allows to maximize heat, the anti-drip spout and the lever lock that allow one to open the coffee pot with a simple gesture of the hand.
