Why is it Special?
Attentive to the narrative capacity of objects, the Sicilian architect Mario Trimarchi designed Ossidiana espresso coffee maker. A project created, like the other ones of the designer, from memories and fragments of images narrated through an object's form.
Ossidiana coffee maker, designed by Mario Trimarchi, is made of polished aluminium. It has an appearance that enhances its ergonomics, making it consistent with the shape of the hand and ensuring an easy grip during opening and closing operations. The small knob, thermoplastic resin coated aluminium to avoid burn, looks as if it almost disappears, leaving the body of the coffeepot to showcase all of its visual powers. Ossidiana encloses the memory of the aspects that characterise the traditional moka and the volcanic stone of the same name, bringing to the kitchen all the forces of a good espresso.
