Description

Austin Design Week 2018 Presents: argodesign Studio Tour

Organized by: argodesign


We are designers and inventors. We love design – for the technology, for the simple joy of the craft, and ultimately for the experiences we create – and we put it to work for our clients. Modern design has outgrown its original remit. Today, designers are modern-day inventors, uncovering unmet needs, conceiving of new products, and giving form and function to new concepts through a wide range of craft and science.

In this interactive tour of our Austin studio, we’ll explore the future of digital experiences and interfaces through demonstrations and thoughtful conversation. Our team will also share an inside look into the design process informing our first incubator project, Stäk, that’s coming to market in early 2019.

Stäk is an immersion coffee brewer designed for those who love not only coffee, but also the beautiful, intentional process that goes into creating the perfect cup. Crafted in-house by a small team of designers, Stäk is made of elegant stoneware ceramic with three stackable components: a funnel, lid, and carafe. When stacked, a hidden valve is engaged to effortlessly filter coffee throughout the unit, creating a ceremonial experience informed by thoughtful design.

There were multiple iterations, trial and error to achieve a final product we’re all proud of. The Stäk team will provide insight into the process from the earliest sketches to physical prototypes, and provide demos that show it in action.
