Named after a coffee region between Bogotá and Medellin, Samaná is a collaborative project between Mexican designer José Bermúdez and Colombian designers Vrokka and Fango Studio that beautifies the ritual of making coffee.
There are two parts to the project. First, the Samaná container made from solid ash wood houses all the coffeewares in the collection and is inspired by the shape of the wooden boxes used by coffee growers. The height of the container is a nod to Mexican cantinas where people meet to drink and chat; the same idea can be applied to this container while making coffee. A leather tab opens the container up to the coffeewares which can be placed on the container’s steel top.
The second part of the project are the Samaná coffeewares. These coffee accessories are made from ceramic and solid oak wood and use the drip method to brew coffee, creating a more intimate bond between the user and the coffee ritual.
