Swiss-based design trio BIG-GAME have created a range of kitchen items featuring a coffee set with kettle and pot that lets fresh drip coffee be fully flavoured. Although the collection’s defining characteristic lies in simplicity of form, it still makes use of the most advanced materials and cutting edge ceramic processes. Being porous, this ceramic coffee filter acts as a percolating device allowing the coffee’s gentle taste to be savoured. Due to the heat-resistant nature of the clay used, the kettle and cooking pot can be warmed over an open fire, in an oven or microwave. The pieces can then be used to directly transfer food to the family table as they serve equally as well as tableware. This is a beautiful design range with great versatility in everyday use.
Augustin Scott de Martinville, Grégoire Jeanmonod and Elric Petit are BIG-GAME. The studio describes their work as simple, functional and optimistic.
