Incredible Concrete Espresso Machine

Obviously Israeli design student Schmuel Linkski was fed up with the term ‘cheap and nasty plastic espresso machines’ so he has designed one encased in concrete for Lavazza.Which certainly guarantees durability.Even though it reminds me of a product from the Flintstones. I love the contrasting materials; the shiny stainless steel embedded into the matt tactile concrete. Why concrete? “I had a vision,” Linkski explains. “Concrete in the kitchen, not only as a wall or decorative part, I wanted it to be a desirable consumer product.” It’s really inspiring to see a bold choice of material, imagine a collection of everyday concrete products? On the downside I would hate to find out how much the shipping cost would be!
