If there’s one thing that we at Minimalissimo enjoy besides that of minimalism, it is coffee. So when we discover a design that combines the two, it will more than likely be showcased, and probably wish-listed too. It is certainly the case for this striking coffee making set designed in collaboration between Italian glass manufacturer Blueside Design and creative consulting studio, Næssi. Together, they have created the “Phil” line—an elegant and fragile looking glass drip coffee making set that resembles objects that you might find in a laboratory.
Each Phil product is made of an extra-clear, 100% borosilicate glass build, which guarantees robustness and thermal shock resistance. A robustness that will undoubtedly be needed and probably a much needed reassurance to anyone looking to get their hands on this beautiful set. The collection includes a glass kettle for stove use, a glass drip coffee maker, a coffee powder measure, and a filter coffee decanter. Handcrafted by skilled artisans in Italy, these pieces have been impeccably designed with a clean, clear, and minimalist aesthetic with soft characteristic to them emphasised by their organic shapes and continuous curvature. In addition, each piece in this set is entirely recyclable and sustainably produced with an on-demand production approach to minimise waste.
The standout product in this set is undoubtedly the glass kettle, named Phil Ninety-Three, as 93° is just the right temperature of the water to pour over the coffee powder.
There’s something inherently special about the ritual of making coffee and being present. And if this a ritual that you value in your everyday, then it is only normal to enrich that experience with good design. And if your mind can go beyond the fear of breaking any of these pieces, then the Phil coffee making set will surely do exactly that.
