Chemex Coffeemaker - in production since 1942!

This beautiful coffee maker is a must-have for any mid-century-modern home. Designed in 1942 and still in production today, the Chemex® Coffeemaker is found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

According to the manufacturers: "This merging of form and function came out of Chemist Peter Schlumbohm's taste for fine flavor. Applying the techniques used to insure laboratory purity, he set out to brew what may have been the first cup of truly, clear, full-bodied coffee - free of undesirable fats, oils, sediment and most of all...bitterness."
