Piippu is a small coffee pot and filter holder inspired by abandoned machinery in Helsinki that remains standing despite having outlived its original purpose. These objects often possess an unusual aesthetic balance in their utilitarian forms that is heightened by the mystery of their intended function. Pipe joints, funnels, cylinders, rust and corroded metals all served as visual inspiration for the form and surface treatment of this tableware set. The pot holds two cups and is ideal for one or two people. The funnel-shaped filter holder directs coffee through a hole in the lid and is weighted to keep it stably in place. Once removed, the hole can be used as a finger hold to remove the lid or filled with a cork plug when the pot is used for tea.
