functional design

( back to purity )

Good design is as little design as possible. No frills, no wasted pixels, no features you use just once and then forget.

Focus on the Idea, Reduce to the Essential, Streamline the User Experience.

That's why we took the inspiring Dieter Rams' Ten Principles of "Good Design" and designed Minù with the same principles.

Hello, Minù.

The most functional (and beautiful) kitchen timer for your smartphone.


Human UI

With Minù setting a timer requires only two taps. We've optimized the user interface to offer you the best user experience.


Press the start button with no time set to turn Minù in a stopwatch.


Start the timer and close the app. Minù will continue to count the seconds in background.

PXL:Artificer quality

Minù has been designed by PXL:Artificer Studios in Tokyo.


it's all about simplicity

Minù is incredibly easy to operate.

Rotate the ring around the main screen (just like a scroll wheel iPod) to set the desired time and then press the alarm button.

the simplest user interface

We tried many kitchen timers for smartphone, but the majoirity are slow to operate, have a terrible user interface or well, they look horrible. That's why we designed Minù to be the most well-designed kitchen timer ever.

Beautiful design

Minù looks amazing. It's not just an app. It's a stylish accessory for your modern kitchen.



beautiful pixels

Minù is a tiny little kitchen timer app that has been heavily inspired by Dieter Rams’ Ten Principles of “Good Design”. It’s one of those apps that do one thing, but do it very well.

PXL:Artificer is a design studio based in Tokyo, Japan.

We care for every single pixels in our apps. Because a great app requires extraordinary attention to make sure all its elements are absolutely perfect.


Our apps are not "software", our apps are "devices". We built them with our passion and commitment, like a watchmaker assembles a watch from scratch with all single parts on the table.


Adding a lot of features and rushing to release an app on the market is never a good idea. We believe it's important to focus on what makes the app special, create a magic experience and then deliver the best.
