Menu Beer Foamer by NORM Architects
The Beer Foamer is a minimalist design created by Norm Architects for Menu. Dense beer foam is known to dramatically increase the taste, aroma, and feeling of beer. Norm decided to create a design that would separate the foaming process and the pouring process. What they achieved was crisp, bubbly beer and soft, dense foam – just like from a draft. The foam is created in a shatterproof container that is topped off with a copper lid – inspiration that was taken directly from copper boilers seen in old beer breweries.
After pouring approximately 1/4 to 1/2 of the beer into the foamer, the user places the copper top over the container and presses a button to activate the foaming process. The foam will rise within the glass beneath the copper top after a few seconds. After pouring the beer, the foam is then added on top of the beer, identical to creating a cappuccino.
Menu was established in 1988 and is highly regarded for its innovative design. In a single stroke, Menu became an impressive, international sales success and is now globally recognised for its design-led works.
