MATRYOSHKA / home appliance


Thanks to introduction of capsule coffee machine, it became easy to choose favorite coffee and make one with variety of recipes. However, since the extraction amount of the coffee liquid varies depending on the recipe, user must prepare for a cup or a tumbler that fits to the recipe separately. For modern that pursues simpler and more intuitive lifestule, it can cause discomfort. Therefore we propose more perfectly simple coffee break by improving the discomfort. This product was designed by reinterpreting the Russian traditional doll ‘Matryoshka’. As structural feature, a cup and a tumbler can be nested inside a coffee machine.
