Espresso Solo by Shmuel Linski

I love espresso machine and this 'Espresso Solo', a concrete espresso machine designed by Shenkar College of Engineering and Design student Shmuel Linski from Israel makes only espresso: short and long.

'The design process begun in choosing the material: 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.

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.

The machine works with coffee beans: they are poured from the top part. The water is poured into “water drawer” in the back.'
-Shmuel Linski.

Check out 'Tea=time + Sugar=time by Erez Bar-am, another student from (graduate) the Shenkar College of Engineering & Design.

TrueCoffee Hotdog by Subconscious

TrueCoffee serves coffee and bakery with hi-speed Internet in cozy and modern atmosphere. In 2009 TrueCoffee expanded their food range to a quick bite like hot dog. They wanted hot dog packaging that would attract teenagers. Subconscious, a communication design studio based in Bangkok reinterpreted the word ‘hot dog’ and created this unique Dachshund character that is hot all the time.

'Our clients were very satisfied with the character and asked us to expand the ‘Hot Dog’ character on other merchandising.'
- Subconscious.
