Illumiknobi is a battery-powered door knob with an internal motion sensor that casts a beautifully illuminated pattern as you approach. Upon detecting your movement, Illumiknobi gently becomes brighter, helping you to navigate the darkened space while leaving others undisturbed. Door knobs are typically purely functional and boring; you don’t think twice when using one—which is what makes Illumiknobi so different. It offers a techno-functional solution designed for simplicity and beauty, which encourages forward thinking about how something commonplace can become innovative and solve everyday problems.

The Ivy Pour-Over system is the first piece of Starbucks-designed store equipment to be offered as merchandise. The intent behind the Ivy Pour-Over was to distill the pour-over experience to the purest relationship of the cone, the cup, and the coffee that flows between them. By suspending the cone above the cup from the top edge rather that the bottom, the eye is drawn to the perfect stream of coffee flowing into the cup below. Ivy's metal cone helps maintain an even temperature, which ensures consistent beverage quality. Other features that make Ivy a pleasure to use are the drip tray plate, which mitigates splashing, and a size that sits perfectly on an Acaia scale.
