Designed by Frank O. Gehry, American (born Canada), 1929. Made by Alessi S.p.A., Crusinallo, Italy, 1921 - present.
Along with other designers and architects, Gehry was invited by Alberto Alessi to design a teakettle for Alessi's family-owned metalwares firm near Milan. This helmet-shaped kettle resembles one version of the Lewis guesthouse, and the mahogany handle and stopper reference the many fish forms that appear throughout the design process.
