If You Think This Coffee Maker Looks Like a Frank Lloyd Wright House, You’re Not Wrong

It's art, you're not supposed to understand it

Need some morning inspiration? Have a cup o’ joe, and drink in “the best all-time work of American architecture.”


Turns out architect Frank Lloyd Wright served as a major inspiration for designer Connor Canavan’s impressive new Cascade coffee maker.

Inspired by the American designer’s famed Fallingwater house (which, FYI, just reopened this week for tours), this pour-over java maker features water cascading from different leveled compartments. Water heats in the middle section and then passes through the coffee grounds on the bottom.

The Detroit-based Canavan says he wanted to make the coffee machine “the centerpiece of the kitchen” and create “a calming environment in the morning.”

Sadly for your morning, this is currently just a concept.
