ONE WEEK ABOUT Beyond Coffee by curator Leonne Cuppen
Bas Froon designed Dude not only as a circular espresso machine, but as a business model based on research how users, owners and cleaners can work more efficiently and sustainable in the whole chain. The machine features a stainless steel reusable pod system. Local coffee stores roast, grind and pack coffee freshly. The pods are stored in special airtight container that is kept in the drawer of the machine.
Bas Froon combines traditional manufacturing processes with technological innovations. He developed a micro moulding machine and is showing a collection of new soft composite materials with various digital edits. Based on natural fibers or recycled fibers such as denim or jute from Starbucks coffee bags.
