Bamboo Dragonfly | Red Dot Design Award

The hand-operated coffee grinder Bamboo Dragonfly combines a contemporary shape with traditional elements on the inside. The performance of the grinder is inspired by the Chinese toy of the same name, a rotating blade which flies high when previously spun. Inside the grinder these “dragonfly wings” grind the beans, a process which the user can watch from the outside. The grinder body consists of aluminium alloy, while the head of the turning grip is made of red wood.

Statement by the Jury

Due to the choice of material and shape, this coffee grinder is truly a pleasure to hold. A beautiful detail is the visible grinding process involving the rotating “dragonfly wings”.
