The beauty of simplicity

Posted on 17/12/2013 by Nick van Lanen

A beautiful design, but simplicity in functionality. That’s what Mark Hellweg, designer of the Ratio Coffee Maker aims for. A coffee maker doesn’t need wifi, but needs to make great coffee and preferably look good in your kitchen.
Also this weighing scale design by Nadine Schaub is based on the classic type. It works by adding small weights on the other side of the pivot. It is a beautiful design, but Nadine also wants to make a subtle statement that we’ve lost our appreciation for objects.
