Simple Slow Coffee
Copenhagen-based design brand Menu’s philosophy is simple: they want to make the world less complicated and a little bit nicer to wake up to. They collaborate with several talented designers, like Murken Hansen who created the ceramic Spoonless Container. A design that perfectly matches the Menu philosophy.
Design office Murken Hansen was founded in Berlin by Hauke Murken and Sven Hansen. They create products with an outstanding usability and quality. Also, they want to contribute to sustainability: “we want to create long selling items because we avoid following trends. So our products are staying up to date for many years. This is our contribution to sustainability.
The Spoonless container for Menu is made of ceramic with cork lids. Very practical, just remove the cork lid and pour. Spoonless is designed to eliminate the need for a spoon. The combination of ‘cold’ ceramic with the warmth of the cork caught my eye. It’s a unique design and comes in several colors and two heights.
The crispy look and silhouette of the container fits the style of the Menu Bottle Grinder I bought it some years ago during a city trip to in Copenhagen. They now make a lovely couple on my kitchen shelf. Simple and basic forms with beautiful details for everyday products, that’s what I like the most about the Menu designs.
A perfect morning starts simple and slow with a carefully prepared cappuccino. A special local coffee blend stored in the Spoonless jar in a beautiful light grey tone called Ash.
