after immersing ourselves in a high tech world, sometimes it is a nice change to see some everyday things going back to its more simpler form – like going back to basic (no, we can’t live without a smartphone) in making a cup of espresso. instead of going for the high tech stainless steel look and an all-in-one design, the Porcelain Espresso Machine (SEPPL Espressomaschine in Porzellan) conceived by designer Arvid Hausser is, as its name implies, crafted out from porcelain and has different parts of the process separated out, hanged on the wall like a beautiful art piece, thereby leaving your table top nice and clean. not a bad concept because a true espresso connoisseur would probably appreciate the inner workings of the machine as much as the caffeinated brew itself. we know we do. unfortunately, the Porcelain Espresso Machine by Arvid Hausser remains as a concept product design with no hint of it ever making it to our lives. check out a few more images of the Porcelain Espresso Machine after the break.
