DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Barisieur

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Tea & Coffee Brewing Alarm Clock

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by a combination of the modern ritual of filter coffee with the iconic vinyl record player, encouraging a nostalgic experience with the user. The design was born with a digital detox in mind, where the design language balances between simplicity and mystified alchemy; watch how the water magically transports from one vessel to other due to steam pressure.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Barisieur is a premium alarm clock that eases you into your morning with the soothing sounds of bubbling water along with the smell of the freshly brewed coffee or loose leaf tea.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
What’s so special? - The Barisieur automates the most important part of your day. Start your day right, waking up to the smell of coffee and the soothing sounds of the intricate Barisieur brewing process. The fresh coffee or tea is used as a natural aromatic relaxant throughout the night then stimulates the user in the morning once brewed. CONVENIENCE - Wake up to Coffee or Tea on your bedside. ● The boiling vessel on the left is sealed with a bung, which is essential for transporting the water. ● The Water boils through induction, heating up the stainless steel base. ● Steam pressure magically moves the water from the vessel into the filter, brewing the user a perfect beverage. ● It has a milk vessel centralized in the base that’s cooled at 3 °C due to the integrated Peltier cooler, which detects if milk is present due to an infrared sensor. ● Sealed drawer for necessities. SENSORY - It stimulates all 5 senses which is very important in today's digital world ● Hear - The sounds of the coffee bubbling away ● Sight - See the water get transported into the filter. ● Smell - The Coffee brewing ● Taste - The brew and wake up. ● Touch - The tangible buttons and hold the cup. VERSATILITY - Works just as well with Tea as it does coffee. Display it on your bedside, kitchen or even at your desk at work. DESIGN - The Barisieur is functional yet aesthetically pleasing. It is an example of contemporary timeless design, which will hopefully accompany you for many years to come. EFFICIENCY - Using induction heating means an efficient boiling time. SAFETY - The barisieur design is safe, since the heating surface stays cool due to induction. It boils through induction technology and turns off through a combination of temperature and time sensors. CE, FCC, UL, Rohs, GS certified. You can set the alarm and set the brew time for the morning (5 mins before, on the alarm or 5,10,15 mins after the alarm) If you want to have an instant brew - you can just press the make like a kettle. It has a reusable filter and does not use 1 use capsules like other machines which are bad for the environment.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Josh raised over $700,000 for a product that he designed at university after it went viral and people from all over the World were after it. Josh collected an impressive mailing list of over 30,000 emails. Josh worked part-time at a design store in Shoreditch (called SCP), serving coffee, talking design to customers in order to pay rent and the product developers he had working for him at the time. He joined Virgin Start-up in order to get a business mentor and a small loan as Josh knew nothing about business. He created a striking video (on a micro-budget) with one of his talented friends from university; Rob Anthill. Driving around England, using friends of friends to let them shoot in their houses or coffee shops in order to get shots whilst sleeping top and tail; living off pizza and coffee. Josh launched his Kickstarter Campaign in May 2016 with an ambitious goal of £380,000 (due to expensive tooling and materials etc.). He raised over £100,000 in 6 hours - it was an incredible start – But he still had a long way to go. A week before the end of the campaign Josh still had £120,000 to go and it didn’t look like he was going to hit his target. It wasn’t until virgin-start up rung Josh to see if he wanted to meet Richard Branson and share his story. After Richard Branson gave him a few tips, where they even spoke about Virgin Hotels, Josh still had to raise £100,000 in just 48 hours. The UK was then told they were leaving the EU, therefore, the conversion rate from sterling to dollar plummeted; consequently, the USA backers would get a more affordable Barisieur. Kickstarter saw that Josh was very close and decided to make the Barisieur ‘project of the day’. Josh ended up crawling over the line by £3,000. He had done it...

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
It encourages a nightly routine, were a repeated action before going to bed has been scientifically proven to increase a better nights sleep. It also encourages one to get off their phone or tablet before going to bed by the USB port in the back which can charge the phone. Blue light emitted from the screen is bad when one is going to sleep. When it comes to the morning, it wakes you up by stimulating all 5 senses - This has also been scientifically proven to be the best way to wake up. 1) The smell of the coffee brewing 2) The sound of it bubbling away, 3) the sight of it happening 4) touching and picking up the glass to drink, 5) tasting the tea or coffee and becoming stimulated by the caffeine ready to seize the morning ahead.

CHALLENGE:
There were a lot of challenges with this entire project. There seemed to be a hurdle every month. From finding the right team to help develop the design for manufacture, to launching the product on Kickstarter and raising enough funds, to making sure the vessel would boil effectively and efficiently to the perfect temperature of 94C. Making sure the design was viable for the market by not compromising on the quality of the material used and the way it was manufactured was very difficult but we got there in the end.
