Over the years, the way we make coffee has changed significantly in many households. The filter coffee was replaced by the fully automatic machine or the portafilter machine, in which the cups are prepared individually. The coffee machine has become a status symbol, and with it the preparation of coffee has become the central element. However, the storage of coffee itself is being neglected: it usually just sits next to the coffee machine in a purely functional square box.
The RIBBON coffee can concept for J. Hornig works differently. It functions like a sculpture in space and adds an aesthetical value like a vase. RIBBON is made of powder coated tubular steel and has two openings. Always in balance, its stand angle changes with the amount and position of the coffee within, bringing coffee back to its central position in today's coffee culture. RIBBON was exhibited during Vienna Design Week 2019 at the festival headquarters.
