Bowls made from used coffee grounds

Bowls made from used coffee grounds. I really like the concept. There are beautiful coffee ground textures on them... I wish I can buy them in HK...!

[ALIKA is a bowl made of “decafé“, a new patented material extracted from used coffee grounds which is ecofriendly. Raúl Laurí is the inventor of this new material.]

Blue deep bowl

If good food are served in a beautiful bowl, you will remember the food, you will remember the bowl and you will remember the place.

This bowl was made by Joanna Tang, a ceramic artist in Hong Kong.

Object Dialogue - Barista

Coco Espresso 是我常到的咖啡店, Kim Yeung 是那裡的咖啡師. 我常發現他們咖啡上面的拉花特別自然好看 - 就像不費吹灰之力就能做到這樣高的水準! 所以便產生了要訪問他的念頭. 要弄一杯好喝好看咖啡實在非常不簡單!

Please check out the new object dialogue! This time I interviewed Kim Yeung, a barista in Hong Kong. Coco Espresso is a coffee shop that I often visit. I started to notice about the beautiful latte art made by Kim. It was a nice chat with him and I found out much behind a single cup of coffee!

Please enjoy the dialogue here:

這火鍋用的勺子由一個香港的師傅手製, 他的攤檔擺放在路邊, 他就這樣坐在摺椅上編織一整天, 他說這款勺子需時30-35分鐘. 看著勺子從一條金屬線開始直到完成, 感覺極奇妙! 手製品的美麗之處在於它的精準, 而從中你卻看不見大量生產製品的生硬感覺.

This wire spoon was made by a Hong Kong craftman. Everyday, he sits on a chair outdoor on the street and starts his metal work. This spoon requires 30-35mins of work.

The spoon has an amazing gold tone and it is suitable for hot pot and cooking boiling food. As the spoon was handmade, every of them are slightly different in appearance. But at the same time, they look much more beautiful than mass-produced spoons.

sharing! The invention of electric washing machine!

(this is a toy machine!)

The first electric washing machine appeared in 1901, thanks to Alva Fisher, who with a motor spun a drum, but did not patent his invention until 1910.The use of the machine became popular when electricity became a commonly used service.

Before electricity was available to rural homes, the family laundry was an all-day task done by hand.
