Alessi Ossidiana Espresso coffee maker in aluminium casting. Handle and knob in thermoplastic resin, black. 6 cups.
Fully aware of an object’s narrative ability, Sicilian architect Mario Trimarchi has designed the “Ossidiana” espresso coffee maker.
Design based on memories and fragments of images
Like his other projects, this one is based on memories and fragments of images, told through the form of an article. “Ossidiana” embraces the memory of the various sides of the traditional moka coffee pot and those of obsidian, the volcanic stone it is named after.

Mario Trimarchi, born in Sicily, has lived and worked in Milan since 1983. An architect of the “freehand” generation, he has always moved freely within the visual universe and considers drawing, photography, design and image as equal components with the same theoretical approach. Between 1994 and 1998 Trimarchi was Director of Advanced Design at the Domus Academy and from 1989 to 2000 was part of the Olivetti Design Studio, where he worked with Michele De Lucchi. In 1999 he founded his own Corporate Identity Care studio, FRAGILE. With FRAGILE he designs systems of identity, coordinated image and visual alphabets through which diverse individualities can be expressed. He has designed many trademarks, most notably for Poste Italiane, the graphics for numerous large exhibitions, communications systems for Italian design companies and, finally, many displays and interiors. Never relinquishing his passion for drawing, architecture or design, he is currently working on the theme of unstable geometries, which he utilises within the context of our relationships with everyday objects in an attempt to change, however slightly, our habitual patterns of living.
