Overview: With a nod to coffee mills in old French cafes, the Peugeot Design Lab Coffee Grinder offers a modern and practical twist on this classic design.

Created in both manual and electric versions, it fits our individual lives and desires. For those who enjoy the tactile act of grinding the beans by hand a crank on top enables that traditional gesture while for those who prefer efficiency and swiftness, an electric motor is available at the touch of a button.

The design is simple and clean, with forms that serve to highlight the function and use. Inspired by the Peugeot design language, it has a scalloped surface at the bottom which reduces the volume of the mill to the essential minimum. The upper transparent part displays the coffee beans while indicating the filling level. After the beans are milled in the central area they fall to the lower part of the mill, arriving into a specially treated wooden receptacle.

Constructed in metal and wood, it is part precise and mechanical, part warm and sensual and at home in either a classic or contemporary interior setting.

Tourbillon Black Hole

Overview: Tourbillon is one of the most basic complications that you look for in a watch, the grounding factor and the most poetic one. It is essential in keeping the negative effects of gravity on the accuracy of time telling, away. What we have here is the Tourbillon Black Hole Concept Watch, which is inspired by our universe and especially by the black holes.

  • The three rings (hours and minutes) are designed like a vortex and the tourbillon escapement represent a nebula that is going to be inhaled.
  • You can see a transparent disk with white points (stars): this is the disk of the seconds and it moves at the speed of 360 degrees / minutes.
  • The moving tourbillon and this stars disk plus the rotating rings will create a beautiful black hole effect.

The movement is mechanical and hand-wound with the power spring placed on the left side of the watch. All of this is visible thanks to a second sapphire glass. The time is indicated by the blue arrow and we can see that presently it shows 3h 18min

Materials: rubber, stainless steel with black PVD finish, Hi-tech black ceramic, sapphire glass.
