PHILIP, the forgotten coffee maker
After purchasing the new workplace coffee machine, PHILIP took a short trip back to its popular past. The coffee machine, which was introduced as state-of-the-art in the good old days, is now outdated, outdated, and old. Despite all these shortcomings, the mannequin, who deals with employees one by one, never gives up on the coffee-making business. On the other hand, he becomes aware of the conversations around that he is now in his last days. Recognizing with a heartache that the new machine will not be able to do what it has done, he ends his workday and turns off the work button.
