Braun KMM 1 aromatic

Weiss' typically sculptural combination of cylindrical and cubic volumes articulates the functional elements of the grinding process as discrete units: jar, motor block and caddy. On a more figural level, the transition from cylinder to cube refers to the formal transformation of beans into grounds. Interesting to compare Weiss' approach with Rams' relatively terse KM 22 design. Functional elements are integrated within a unified form, whilst only the quantitative factor of the grinding process - volumetric reduction - is given formal expression.
