The Alessi Bird Kettle by Michael Graves has to be one of the greatest icons of modern design created over the past 30 years. It's hard to believe the Bird Kettle is as old as it is but with its soft melodic whistle it's become the best ever selling item to the company. It always adds a touch of fun to the most minimal of kitchen designs and looks equally good placed in really modern or traditional kitchens. Whilst it is undoubtably modern in design it echoes its ancestors with a ring of raised dots around the base which remind us of rivets once used to secure base and body in older kettles. It's also available as an electric version which does not whistle.
