Moving right along with my preview of the Good Design Awards, here is a product from the Kitchen and Home Furniture categories, respectively.

Product: Faro Coffee Maker
Designer: Kosei Shirotani
For: Kinto
The Faro Coffee Maker attempts to replace everything disposable (plastic cups and paper filters) within coffee-making process. I also like the minamal design and the way it stacks for easy storage.

Product: Lamp Pumplight
Designer: Pegatron (sounds like a nerdy transformer)
This is an intruiging lamp that forces us to be more concious of our relationship between light. By using the accompanied hand pump you not only inflate the lamp shell (balloon) but you also increase the intensity of the light!
