Espresso Solo, a coffee machine made of concrete and metal designed by industrial designer Shmuel Linski, who loves to work with concrete. This project is also an exciting new idea to use concrete as major. Love this design.
“Called Espresso Solo, the conceptual product features metal working parts and a concrete case. The espresso machine makes only espresso: short and long. The design process begun in choosing the material: I choose 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. The contrast between the roughness, massiveness and hardness of the concrete and the fine metal parts, which are dealing with the coffee preparation process, was very challenging and interesting for me.” Says Shmuel Linski
