The Urn Coffee Maker Is Inspired By the Past with Future Functionality

It's always fascinating to see designers bridging epochs with their creations, which is precisely what's been accomplished with the creation of the Urn coffee maker. Proposed as an entry into Alessi's Espresso Coffee Maker scholarship competition, this pot undoubtedly earned second prize for the way it encapsulates a long, rich history of harmonious form and function. The shape was inspired by the royal amphorae of Jaipur –– a form that catered well to the anatomy of this precise coffee brewer. Akshay Khandelwal's beautiful aluminum coffee machine was then brought into the present day by the integration of smart technology, enabling it to be controlled by means of a smartphone app. While the Urn coffee maker harkens to history, it also reflects upon the user's past preparation preferences to make your perfect beverage automatically, every time.
