French press coffee!

Post Modern French Press Coffee Maker by Bodum.

NOBODY EVER BOUGHT A COFFEE MAKER, THEY BOUGHT A BUZZ

*

Pictured here is the ‘Bodum’- (Danish-Swiss kitchenware manufacturer, since 1944) Post Modern French Press Coffee Maker.

Yellow plastic, red plastic, baby blue plastic, polished metal and glass, possibly ‘Pyrex’. A neat piece of Post Modernism for around AU$15.00, I picked this one up at Myer, Doncaster Victoria, Australia.

As a French Press it works well, is durable and washes easily. Providing you have the right grind of beans, it makes a good coffee!

What I like about this design is you can have a slice of Post Modernism as an affordable everyday utilitarian object in your own home. It’s fun! A clever design that not only titillates your taste buds but also provides an eye-catching slice of what engineering and aesthetics can accomplish.

Bodum has recently brought out other versions of the same product only using a different colourway, i.e. ‘cafe latte’ and ‘black’.

Bodum has long been a significant maker of French Press Coffee Makers and other tea and coffee parafernalia. Alternatives to the Bodum French Press are many, in this product style, Bodum seems to be a quality and price competitive player!
