As the winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2021, Gevi is turning the idea that a coffee machine must look like a large, bulky, box-shaped device on its head. With its cylindrical design, which branches out into the cantilevered coffee grinder and the brewer, the Gevi uses the visual drama and appears almost sculptural, like a ballerina on a single leg. While this description may be a little too artistic for a coffee maker, it does make it clear that even a mundane kitchen appliance can be designed to look beautiful.
Cellars have been used over the centuries to store groceries or even act like bunker houses during natural disasters. Groundfridge takes this design one step further by adding to the game of fresh food refrigeration. Groundfridge’s trick is to take advantage of the natural insulating properties of the floor and the cooler night air temperatures. The balance of this design allows you to store your vegetables, fruits, cheese, and even wine all year round. The ventilation of this project uses a fan with a timer that replenishes the cool air during the night. Too hot for comfort? An additional cooler can be used to power it on the hottest summer days.

The OTOTO tea trap gives the art of tea preparation a playful touch. In contrast to these boring metal sieves, the tea trap is modeled after a carnivorous plant that eats up your tea leaves. Once the tea trap’s stomach (or mouth) is full, simply dip it in a cup of hot water and the tea will begin to pour through the perforations on the sides of the tea container. Use the tea trap’s extended handle to stir it until your tea is the right color, and when you’re done the tea trap kindly spits the tea leaves into the trash can because nobody likes to eat tea leaves … not even carnivorous plants!

The small chamber contained in the so-called spark adapter allows you to aerate your water up to 15 times, no matter where you are without batteries. As soon as the Spark adapter runs out of CO2, it is refilled via a refill station at home, which is located on your kitchen countertop.

Since it is more difficult for people to remove the lid of the water bottle and hold it while drinking, the Designer designed Loop so that users can slide the lid over the neck of the bottle while drinking. The shape of the loop neck was specially developed as a storage method for the lid of the water bottle and provides a convenient and hygienic place to carry the cap. In addition to the design of the loop, the designers state: “The inside of the loop is gently curved and adapts precisely to the contours of the bottle; This allows for a tight friction fit that prevents slipping while the user is drinking. In addition, the lid serves as a practical handle and attachment point for hanging on bags. “
