Why is it Special?

Fully aware of an object's narrative ability, Sicilian architect Mario Trimarchi designed the "Ossidiana" stove top espresso coffee maker. Like his other projects, this one is based on memories and fragments of images, told through the form of an article. "Ossidiana" embraces the memory of the various sides of the traditional moka coffee pot and those of obsidian, the volcanic stone it is named after.
