The Barisieur is a clever design concept by London designer Josh Renouf for a combination alarm clock and coffee brewer. Instead of a jarring alarm, the Barisieur wakes the user through the subtle sound of steel balls jostling in a water boiler — the balls heat the water through induction — and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. The device also features a drawer for coffee grounds and sugar, and a vial for milk.
The Barisieur is inspired by a combination of the modern ritual of filter coffee with the iconic vinyl record player, encouraging a nostalgic experience for the user. The design was born with a digital detox in mind, where the design language balances between simplicity and mystified alchemy; watch how the water magically transports from one vessel to other due to steam pressure.
