Pulcina coffee maker, designed by Michele de Lucchi, comes from a research entirely dedicated to the design and functionality of the espresso coffee maker. It's a high-performance coffee maker with a boiler that stops dispensing the drink at the right time before the coffee gets a bitter aftertaste. This helps to enhance the full and rich aroma of this drink. The spout has been designed with the same attention to functional aspects: when pouring coffee, its special V shape, which recalls a chick's beak (hence the name of the coffee maker) allows it to perfectly stop the drop. The handle and plastic knob in colors black and red complete the coffee maker.
Michele De Lucchi was a prominent figure in movements like Cavart, Alchimia, and Memphis. He designed lamps and furniture for the most well known Italian and European companies and realized architectural projects in Italy and abroad. His work has been exhibited in Europe, the United States, and Japan. He was appointed Officer of the Italian Republic for services to design and architecture and has been nominated Professor at the Design Faculty of the Politecnico of Milan and Member of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca in Rome.
