Originally designed in 1945 by Carlo Alessi, the Bombé collection was first produced in chrome-plated and silver-plated heavy brass, and later in stainless steel.
Bombé 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 reminds of pop art and there are clear references to a “rounded” morphological history of the coffee maker, from Christopher Dresser onwards.
This five-piece set includes: coffee pot, tea pot, milk jug, sugar bowl and tray.
