Portable Coffee Maker
2019. 10 Weeks.
As a homage to my inspiration, I wanted to design a product that could fit into BRAUN's portfolio. At the time, there were no portable coffee makers besides the age-old manual ones. I first started by analysing their design language to better understand the forms, finishes, patterns, and materials they used.
A combination of rectilinear, and cylindrical shapes.
It was at a time when the coffee pod system was just catching on. While it simplified making coffee, it was still a tool that needed a specific home.
And that data was key in setting off my ideation process.
The machine took many shapes.
Big, bulky & boring
Had unnecessary parts
Understanding of proportions
Spring-loaded lid with 360 degree flow
Spout for coffee
Spout for water
Housing for mid-section
Induction heater, and charging port
Simply put, it's an electric mokha pot that can go where you go.
