SoftBrew Coffe Pot

Last week the NYT had an interview with George Sowden, designer of the SoftBrew.  SoftBrew is a pitcher style coffee brewing gadget.  George Sowden's obsession with coffee led to him inventing the SoftBrew.  Sowden often visited factories instead of museums as a tourist, and believes there is a disconnect between designers and manufacturing.   Because of this, and his obsession with coffee, Sowden was very involved with production of the coffee maker’s two components: the  porcelain pitcher, and the stainless steel filter insert with photo-etched micrsoscopic holes.
