Here on Craft Collective we love coffee, and the only thing we might like even more than a coffee, is a coffee machine with a great design. While I’d love to have the concrete machine we featured before, the new illy Y1 is certainly more compact, and likely less weight… Great designs are always coming out of illy, it’s unfortunate that it’s a capsule machine as they do create a lot of waste.
This concrete espresso machine named “Espresso Solo” was designed by Schmuel Linski, a student at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. The machine is made from concrete as well as metal parts and can make a short or long espresso. It’s a very simple design which works wonderfully with the concrete, very inspiring!
