Designed by Michael Graves in 1985, the "Graves" Kettle by Alessi with the bird-shaped whistle became one of the icons of 20th century design. To mark the 30th anniversary of this famous kettle, Graves has redesigned the whistle, turning the little bird into a charming supernatural reptile, a prehistoric, mythological and futuristic creature all at the same time: Tea Rex, hence the name Tea Rex Kettle. The choice of the dragon is a reference on the part of the designer to the Chinese culture for whom these beings symbolise strength and fortune.
