Portland, Oregon, has long been famous for its DIY culture and fussy foodies. Bucket, a Portland-based design firm founded by Bryan Kappa and Rob Story, has found the perfect synthesis of Stumptown Coffee Roasters and Etsy with the Portland Press, a clever French Press that attaches to an every day mason jar. Bucket devised the spout, press, and felt cozie. The rest is nothing you won't find in Aunt Ida's basement. Provided you haven't raided it already for your pickling projects, you hippie. Click through the slideshow for a look at the product and more from the Bucket boys.
Today, we kicked off this year’s annual Dwell on Design at the LA Convention Center, which will continue through Sunday, June 26th. Though we’ve been hosting this extensive event for years, this time around is particularly special.
