“The Siska French Press was the first bud in this collection. It was first shown at the Food Work exhibition at Tokyo Design Tide 2012. It might have a traditional form, but a rather untraditional choice of materials for a coffee maker. Untraditional – but not at all unfamiliar; porcelain, cork, steel, wood and leather. The materials signal something honest and natural, tactile, lasting, and of high quality.
During the spring of 2013, the Siska Coffee Grinder was born, and shown at the exhibition On Time with Klubben in Oslo and Paris. The rest of the Siska collection evolved over the summer and will be shown for the first time at the 100% Norway exhibition during London Design Festival 2013.
The Siska collection is not made for people who demand efficiency, but for people who appreciate quality; you buy your coffee beans at the local roster, ground them yourself, and have all the time in the world tying the leather lace around the pot, waiting for the water to boil.
The collection consists of; coffee bean container, coffee grinder, french press coffee maker, cups, sugar bowl, milk jug and candy dish.” Photos: Ellen Johanne Jarli, Kaja Bruskeland. kristinebjaadal.no
