On-The-Go French Press
This french press was created for a 4 week redesign of the Bodum French Press. This design was intended to fulfill a few goals:
Able to brew on the go
Speak and modern design
Personality and Discovery
It was important for me to outline my consumer and design language that would guide my product. The original french press is extremely dated and doesn’t follow modern coffee trends.
After doing research on the Bodum French Press, a few areas for re-design became apparent. I used these to guide my design.
One large issue was that the user had to spend a long amount of time brewing coffee in this press and were not able to brew on the go. For my design I wanted to allow the user to make coffee in a crunch for time.
The Bodum is also very difficult to clean. it is difficult to take apart and because of this, mold tends to grow in it. My solution is a fully modular design.
