TEENAGE ENGINEERING INSPIRED TOUCHLESS COFFEE MACHINE

UX/UI - ART DIRECTION - BRANDING

When I was working in Nacar Design as Lead UI designer I had the opportunity to work in coffee machine projects a couple of times. It's an exciting industry that I love, for this reason I've created a new project to share a few insights I learned in this projects.

Overview

I love what Teenage Engineering is doing, like any other designer out there, I guess. Nothing new there. But what if we created a coffee machine based on this company iconic design K.O. II?

Well, we can at least dream about it, don't we?

What is KOF

KOF Brand is going to be the umbrella name of this project that could combine Teenage Engineering and a selected coffee brand. This branding concept is a pure tribute of what the company is doing with a coffee twist in the main letter of the logo.

The inspiration for this project was huge. In the end TO is creating iconic products based on timeless product designs, it blends with cyberpunk references and it even inspires hardware design.

INSPIRATION

The moodboard included a lot of hardware, cyberpunk references and physical buttons. I thought it made sense to create a non-touch screen to be even closer to these references.

UI DESIGN

Based on the most iconic interactions of the KO II screens I redesigned a coffee web app with basic controls, including levels, coffee recipe functionalities, serving and choosing menu and a few coffee related icons.

IT WAS FUN

The redesign Coffee Engineering design has been a purely fun and aesthetically pleasing driven project. From time to time it's good to do this type of works, although they probably are forgetting, at least, the Business Viability part.
