Regular price$955.00 Sale price
The now famous "Big Dripper" by Michael Graves. A humorous name for a grand creation: a 14 cups coffee maker with creamer, sugar and spoon. A design landmark, at the intersection of two great schools of thought: the European Radical Design and the American Post-modernism; The New International Style! Michael Graves made a "coup de maître" with this architectural coffee maker, overcoming his precedent huge success with the whistling tea kettle for Alessi. It was a time when Michael Graves was considered one of the most important living architects.
