Product Description

Chemex Handblown Coffee Maker

This famous beaker-like vessel changed America's way of thinking about coffee-making. Invented by chemist Peter Schlumbohm and featured in the Museum’s collection, the Chemex Handblown Coffee Maker has been lauded for its simple, sleek design. Its chemically correct method of brewing is thanks to its hourglass-shaped flask made entirely of glass, a chemically inert material that doesn’t absorb odors or chemical residues. To brew, put coffee into the Chemex bonded filter (sold separately) and add hot water to make up to eight cups of coffee. Mouth-blown from heat-resistant glass with a wooden handle. Dishwasher and microwave-safe. Set of 100 filters sold separately.

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
