DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Mabrada

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Console

INSPIRATION:
The old coffee grinder inspired me to design this console

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A unique console made of painted wood with stone finish, showcasing an old authentic coffee grinder which goes back to the ottoman period. The shape of an old Jordanian coffee cooler (Mabrada) was reproduced and sculpted to stand as one of the legs on the opposite side of the console where the grinder sits, creating a fascinating piece for a foyer or living room.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This design of a console can be used in any foyer or dinning room, creating a conversation piece & emphasizing beautiful Old Heritage pieces. It is design that acknowledges & defines our traditional handicrafts before fading away, especially to the new generation who nearly knows nothing about it.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
It was produced by an artisan carpenter in the period of two months, in Amman, Jordan

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The material is new & old wood & special affect paint as well as the old coffee grinder & its board.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length of console 120cm Depth 31cm Height till top of console 80cm Height till top of grinder 119cm

TAGS:
art furniture, crafts, console, heritage, authentic, Jordanian, coffee grinder Mabrada

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As a designer, Iam always concerned & consistent at reviving & emphasizing our old traditional heritage pieces in my designs. This old coffee grinder with a board looked so interesting that I immediately started formulating a sketch & a design, whereby it would be functional & make a statement within a piece of furniture.

CHALLENGE:
The moment I laid eyes on this old coffee grinder,I immediately imagined using it as part of a modern console. The most challenging part for me as a designer was finding another component to compliment & add to the old coffee grinder in designing the console. I happen to have an old coffee cooler (Mabrada) so I reproduced its shape to stand as one of the legs of the console on the opposite side where the grinder sits.This narrates the birth story of this creation. My clients were fascinated & loved the idea.
