bombé tea & coffee service

Designer:   Carlo Alessi

Designed in 1945, this service was first produced in chrome-plated and silver-plated heavy brass, and later in stainless steel. “The Bombé service is very much a product of the postwar sociocultural climate, and as such it's a specific phenomenon of the design and customs that are associated with the first age of Italian design, with walnut furniture, the curves of the Vespa, the Isetta bubble car, the first Arflex armchairs, and the typewriters designed by Marcello Nizzoli for Olivetti. Seen through modern eyes, it also suggests pop art and there are clear references to a “rounded” morphological history of the coffee maker, from Christopher Dresser onwards.” (Alessandro Mendini)

The Tea & Coffee service is offered in 18/10 stainless steel, with handle and knob in bakelite or EPSS silver-plated stainless steel with handle and knob in applewood. The set includes coffee pot, tea pot, milk jug, sugar bowl and oval tray.
