Ceramic Futures - No Boundaries Brief
The filter is manufactured from 'Ceramic Foam',
which will naturally filtrate coffee because of its perforations.
The hot plate is manufactured from a ceramic called 'Alumina',
which helps keep the coffee jug warm, because of its good energy transfer properties.
The tactile feel of ceramics helps to define the premium in this coffee machine.

'Bloom' - gardening bag - RSA 2004:
Inclusive Worlds - Smart Wearables Brief
Hard waterproof bag to keep gardening tools together.
One half can be used as a knee rest, the other has an intuitive timer to pace yourself in the garden.
The idea of pacing yourself is so you don't overexert yourself,
lose track of time, & forget to take your medication.
'You can reap almost the same health benefits from gardening as you can from a workout in a gym.'
says BUPA Dr Sally Cubbin.
