Detailed Commentary

The Atomic is truly an object which crosses the line of functionality into art. It is hard to stop staring at this machine because it embodies so much information about the culture from which it was borne. It truly reflects all of our future aspirations, our birth into the nuclear age and our fear of the complexity embodied in that age. It is not a coffeemaker- it is an artistic statement, made by a brilliant Italian graphic designer who knew a lot more about the world than he did about coffee. It is pictured in several important books on 20th Century Design and is considered a landmark design of that period. People are spending $500. for mint machines, NOT because it makes a good pot (although I hear it does) but because they want to complete an existing  collection of graphic art that stresses the relationship between form and function. So please, stop sending letters asking how to use this thing. The idea of flame under this pot makes me cringe. Display it, and know that you own something very special. Best to you all-Fred
