Muji Non-directional Coffee Maker by Kazushige Miyake

The Muji Coffee Maker’s starting point is its landscape of use. Its form is a perfect cylinder, making the product non-directional something that has not been done previously. This allows it to sit well in a corner of a kitchen or equally in the center of a table, and was achieved by technically by ‘wrapping’ the water reservoir around the filter. The coffee pot is made of vacuum stainless steel. The stainless steel handle ensures the palette of materials is kept to a minimum so that it looks and works well away from its machine, instead of appearing as a component. The product also involves a water filer, 5-cup capacity and thermostatic heater.

    Laura is right, but it’s not so important for yanko design to adjust this 😉
    Kazushige Miyake is from the same circle of designers like Fukasawa, Hecht an Matsumoto. But the bigger coffee maker Myake’s looks very, very similar to the one from Hecht. Muji’ll have his reasons to give a similar breeving to Miyake.
    This Muji product is only available in Japan and has a 110 Volt plug- not usable in europe.

    I think non-directional design must mean that it does not look great from any one direction

  • It’s hard to come by knowledgeable people in this particular subject,
    but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
