Concrete Espresso Machine

Okay, this one’s gonna be hard one to break… This concrete espresso machine was designed and built by Shenkar College of Engineering and Design student Shmuel Linski in Israel.

I love mixed media products like this. The Espresso Solo encases a Lavazza unit into a front and back housing cast in concrete. Why concrete Shmuel?

I chose concrete. I had a vision: concrete in the kitchen, not only as a wall or decorative part, I wanted it to be a desirable consumer product.

Sorry regular coffee fans, the espresso machine makes only espresso: short and long.

Desirable? Yes. Visually compelling? Of course. Easy to pick up in the store and take home? Well…
