Ek Omnia

In this Deep Dive, Camillo König, Industrial Designer and Competence Lead Mechanical Engineering and Bastian Renner, Senior UI/UX Designer at Imago Design GmbH will walk us through their Gold-Award-winning project "Mahlkönig EK OMNIA”.

About the Project: Ek Omnia

Winner of the UX Design Award | Gold 2024

Mahlkönig's EK Omnia coffee grinder is the newest member of the product family. Key features include three grinding modes, from classic to automated, a hybrid interaction concept merging physical and digital user experiences, combined manual and motorised adjustments, and a real-time precision of 1 micron (0.001 mm) when setting the distance of the grinding disks.

UXDA Jury members Annika Rupp and Tim Richter:

"The Gold Award goes to EK Omnia for a coffee grinder showcasing top-tier qualities: consistent design, automation, a user-focused approach and development based on thorough research. The different modes that can be remotely controlled are clearly targeted at people according to their level of knowledge, solving service quality problems caused by staff shortages and lack of knowledge sharing. The combination of a physical ring and a digital touchscreen allows logical interaction and skillfully bridges the gap between software and hardware components. Noteworthy for its meticulous and clean product design, high-end material quality, and intuitive user guidance, this excellent product not only leverages connectivity and automation to improve efficiency and effectiveness, but also addresses repairability and waste reduction, adding to its holistic appeal."
