Café Latte is a type of drink that is enjoyed slowly. The Perch is designed to create more ergonomic features between the user and the product throughout the experience.
I like the simplicity of Vignelli’s Designs, especially the compact Stacking Cup. Despite it’s simplicity, it delivers the whole idea. In addition to Vignelli’s influence, I also found inspiration from nature, especially from the way tree branches seamlessly connect to the trunk.
I began with researching about Café latte history. I then looked for common Café latte vessels and features related for this kind of vessel; such as volume, agronomy, shape and material.
The challenge was designing a product for a company who manufactures all their pieces by glass. I started sketching to determine the different shapes. I used various materials and tools to fabricate models for human interaction testing. When I figured out my final pieces, I designed them on the computer, then started to 3D print them.
