For the Coffee Aesthete: Daniel Debiasi & Federico Sandri’s Collar Coffee line for Stelton
As far as coffeemakers and all the accessories you can buy to go with them, there are basically two categories.
There’s the whole kitchen coffee maker sort — you know — they get the job done, they’re reliable, and we can find them at any giant retailer. Then there are the accessories for those who are not just coffee enthusiasts, but also aesthetes who appreciate design to the fullest.
Italian design duo Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri had just that thought in mind when they were commissioned to create a coffee collection for the Danish design label Stelton. We all know that Italians look at their daily coffee breaks as a ritual, stopping at the café or brewing a fresh pot of espresso in the comfort of their own kitchens. Italians also have a knack for design — Milan didn’t become one of the world’s design capitals without good reason.
Debiasi and Sandri combined the best of both worlds, fusing their love for coffee with their passion for design to create a line of accessories that would make any coffee lover (or feinschmecker (the German word for gourmet) happy. The Collar line consists of four pieces: a coffee grinder, an espresso brewer, a milk jug, and a sugar bowl.
Sleek, functional and minimal, the accessories are black with curved lines. The grinder, which allows you to grind beans by hand, comes with a handle and a stainless steel top that lets you spin around the grinder effortlessly. Both the brewer and the milk jug come equipped with a wooden handle, so that you won’t burn your hands from the heat. Meanwhile, the simple sugar bowl comes in black, with clean, curved lines.
So pour your coffee with pride. The Debiasi and Sandri Collar line for Stelton combines the Italian love for coffee and its passion for design with an aesthetic that is undeniably Scandinavian.
