Company founder Peter Bodum, who established the family company Bodum in Denmark in 1944, has a philosophy that good design does not have to be expensive. Add to that a clear commitment to environmental protection, sustainability and first-class working conditions, and you’ve got an ideal recipe for perfect tea and coffee preparation. In times like these, when plastic, capsules, and machine-made coffee have become all the rage, Bodum Bistro is a real lifesaver in a sea of disposable cups.
It all started in the middle of the last century, with the invention of vacuum coffee machines. The young entrepreneur was impressed by the taste of the coffee and started optimising the design. In 1974, when his son Jørgen took over Bodum together with his sister Pia, the company grew into a worldwide network. In order to ensure a strategic positioning at the heart of Europe, the company headquarters were relocated to Switzerland, creating PI-Design, a department where graphic designers, engineers and architects are jointly responsible for the innovative functionality. Today, the company is represented globally, launching its flagship stores in major cities and taking its concept of sustainability all over the world.
These original Danish designer pieces use valuable, sustainable resources that have been handled respectfully. Glass and stainless steel are the main elements of the Bistro Nouveau coffee maker, and the matching six-piece Bistro cup set also comes in strong, elegant glass.
