This “rocks”

August 16, 2010 § 2 Comments

Israeli student Shmuel Linski created this Expresso Solo concrete expresso machine while at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.

There are so many reasons to love this project: the simplicity of functions, the contrast of the concrete and the smooth curves, the patina that might develop from coffee stains, an appliance that becomes part of the design of your home rather than a temporary “thing”,¬† and the textural contrast of the harsh concrete to the smooth steel and glass. Minimalist, but dirty.

I have no idea how much it weighs, but you can’t let a detail like that weigh you down.
