From the manufacturer
Founded in 1921 as a 'Workshop for the processing of brass and nickel silver sheet metal, with foundry', Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products. In almost a century of history, the company has gradually evolved to become one of the leading 'Factories of Italian design', capable of applying its expertise and excellence in design management to many different product types. Open to change and international development, Alessi at the same time has a strong bond with the traditions and cultural background of its area and continues to be synonymous with handcrafted objects produced with the help of machines.
Alessi’s mission is to translate its quest for the most advanced cultural, aesthetic, design and functional quality into industrial production. Designer products are the result of the constant reconciliation of art and industry, of the 'Immensity of Creative Potential' and the needs of the market. The company is committed to work constantly onto a boundary line, in balance between the most advanced expressions of the international creativity and the desires of the general public. Alessi has been described as a 'Dream Factory', which uses its products to make people’s dreams come true, providing them with the Art and Poetry that they seek.

Naoto Fukazawa's characteristic minimalist rigour is appearing once again with "Cha", a refined object that is both a Kettle and a Teapot, thanks to its structural detail. "Cha" - from the Japanese word for tea - is fitted with a large and elegant filter for the tea leaves.

1. Thermoplastic resin is just a fancy way of saying plastic. Both the handle and knob are plastic; they will melt on the stove if not careful. I don't want to pay $200 for a "kettle" that I can't use on the stove.
2. Finish is beautiful but scratches easily
3. The strainer holes are large and unsuitable for most loose leaf teas
4. Made in China
I expected better from Alessi.
