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…
