A better everyday one cup at a time
Trends travel fast today. In the world of coffee and tea, we pick up interesting habits and quirky behaviours in the blink of an eye. That’s why we’ve looked into how people live, eat and drink to find out what they need to make that perfect cup. One of the things we noticed was that a kitchen full of gadgets doesn’t make it easier to make good coffee and tea. It’s more important to have a few carefully selected products that can make a difference. Here are some of them!
Designers Mikael Axelsson and Nike Karlsson
"We`ve always been interested in coffee and tea and we got to be really nerdy during this assignment. We wanted to make generous, functional and true products that focus on the drink. A kitchen full of gadgets doesn`t make it easier to get the right taste-
instead we focused on a few things with really good quality. With these products you can make the perfect cup- and enjoy good coffee and tea whenever you like"
What is stainless steel?
Stainless steel is found in everything from building structures and cars to sinks and knives. It’s easy to see why it has so many uses. Stainless steel is hard and durable and has good resistance to corrosion – namely rust. It generally has a low nickel content, and for IKEA products we mainly use stainless steel that’s nickel-free. Like many other metals, it can be recycled again and again to become new, hardwearing things – without losing its valuable properties.
