A classic French press that can be used to make coffee or tea, the Push Coffee Maker is a modern take on an iconic object. A stoneware body with beech wood knob on top, the earth tones of the Push are offset by the gentle curves of the handle and jug. When removing its press, the Coffee Maker can be used as a jug for cold beverages.

On Her Design Philosophy
“Living in a world with many things, I feel a great responsibility when designing something new. It is important that the objects I design possess the qualities needed to become useful and appreciated tools in the everyday life. The function is therefore essential and the use-value is crucial. I try to rid myself of fashion trends and create products with a high level of durability.”
On Scandinavian Design
"I find that it is about honesty and simplicity—in the materials, in the manufacturing, and in the purpose of use. It is about moving forward with a great awareness of where we are coming from and what we’re moving towards."
