The Plastic-Free, Pour-Over Coffee Maker Is Also A Sculpture

We've seen our fair share of beautiful coffee makers—this wall-mounted copper one is probably the masterpiece. Coffee makers often push the boundaries of home appliance design in the best way, but they can get expensive. So it's nice to see something a little more attainable, like the AltoAir, gorgeously brew our morning cup.

The AltoAir can be used simply with a glass, or with a Chemex if you're feeling intense. Made from 100 percent stainless steel, it won't put any gross plastic into your cup'a joe. The designer claims that the system allows more airflow, making the coffee better, but we're mainly into it for its looks.

Despite appearances, the AltoAir isn't collapsible, so don't try. It'll cause irreparable damage and will ruin your coffee, your morning, and your entire life.
