Sucabaruca是一组非常精致的咖啡壶。它的诞生源自John Baker和Juli Daousti在加拿大多伦多某画廊的一次碰面。设计师被他的朋友要求使用画廊中现有的材料制作一件与画廊相匹配的作品，来自欧洲的设计师想到了咖啡，欧洲拥有世界上最古老的咖啡屋，比如威尼斯的Florian，而设计师恰好也生活在威尼斯（他也常在斯德哥尔摩生活。），于是一套带过滤功能的餐费饮具诞生了，这套优雅具有仪式感与传统底蕴的咖啡饮具系列将北美洲与欧洲北大陆之间的共同点联系起来。此外这种过滤咖啡的传统也正是源于设计师的出生地，在过去几个世纪，咖啡被视作祭仪饮料。
The idea of “Sucabaruca” coffee set stemmed from the encounter with John Baker and Juli Daousti in September 2013 at their gallery in Toronto. After their experience with the studio Claesson Koivisto Rune, they encouraged me to realize in turn a product suited to their gallery/shop using only the craft resources available in the area.
The common thread previously woven by my friends and colleagues Mårten, Eero and Ola seemed to be the way to go and so I wanted to create a product that could also complement their project“Ceremony”.
For many years now my life has been divided between Stockholm and Venice, the town where I was born and where Caffè Florian – among the oldest cafés in Europe – is, I immediately came up with the idea of designing a coffee set that aims to combine the modern ritual of filtered coffee, which unites several countries including North America and Scandinavia, with the renowned tradition of my land, where coffee has been a cult drink for centuries.
咖啡饮具的设计受到了参与项目众人的影响，包含了丰富的文化和礼仪内容。表面的图案皆是手工雕刻而成，具有唯一性。加拿大枫木支撑的托盘是绝好的衬托底盘。这些饮具还能进行堆叠和组合，并有不同的色彩可以选择。柔和的白色来自服装设计师Martin Margiela的启发，彩色调则有日本古建的风韵，而流行色则来自是对折中主义艺术家Jean-Paul Goude的礼赞。
The “Sucabaruca” coffee set is rich in cultural and formal references that come from the influences of several people involved in the project. The main cone-shaped body is reminiscent of “Carmencita”, the famous character created by Armando Testa in 1966 for the tv show“Carosello”.
“Sucabaruca” The patterns, hand-engraved by hand in the ceramic, are meant to emphasize the uniqueness of the pieces, as well as for the tray, manufactured using materials such as Canadian maple wood or marble, which always reveal new and unique patterns when carved. Just like in a game, the set elements can be stacked and combined as desired, indulging in the different personalities offered by 3 colour palettes, from total white, inspired by the fashion designer Martin Margiela, to pastel tones, characteristic of Japanese architectures, and eventually pop colours, a tribute to the eclectic artist Jean-Paul Goude.
项目从一开始就融合了来自不同文化背景和不同国家的人。Juli和John雄心勃勃地从斯堪的纳维亚半岛和日本收集作品，然后在加拿大推广。加拿大陶艺家Alissa Coe制作的锥形原型巧妙地诠释了这个项目。出生于俄罗斯的后来被收养的纽约设计师和艺术家Lera Moiseeva与瑞典和意大利的Nichetto工作室合作，致力于咖啡具的发展。这个项目因这些人而丰富，从而成为一个备具包容性的国际化创意与能量体。
It is a project that, from the start, has been involving people from different cultures and countries: Juli and John who, with passion, collect and distribute in Canada products mainly from Scandinavia and Japan; the Canadian ceramist Alissa Coe, who made the prototypes, skillfully interpreting our project; and Lera Moiseeva, designer and artist of Russian origin, but New Yorker by adoption, who contributed to the development of the coffee set in collaboration with Nichetto’s studios in Sweden and Italy. All these people have enriched the project, making it an extraordinary melting pot of ideas and energy on an international scale.
