Moon Coffee Maker

Product Design, 2020

Moon Is a concept for a coffee machine that’s trying to keep the “steampunk” look of the traditional espresso makers, while maintaining a clean shape and cute character.

 

Coffee machines nowadays are a common household appliance, and with that their design had changed and reduced from those industrial espresso makers we now see only in restaurants.

I’ve always been fascinated with those big chrome machines that almost looked like a small lab, it made me think about how we perceive coffee now when the whole ritual is being reduced to a capsule and a press of a button.

 

When sitting down to decide on my concept I though how can I incorporate this love for mechanical and tactile looking objects, with an updated clean look? Can I make a coffee machine that looks scientific but also has a cute character?
