Made in China: Coffee maker is purely tasteful

11 : 03 : 2012 Rough : Raw : Industrial

Weimar – German designer Arvid Häusser has designed an espresso machine made from porcelain.

Häusser chose the material for its thermal conductivity and superior functionality. While metallic finishes can have an effect on the flavour of the coffee produced from espresso makers, porcelain helps retain a purer taste.

‘The qualities of porcelain, including high thermal storage, neutrality in taste and an antiseptic surface, make the material ideal for use in the food context,’ explains the designer.

LS:N Global has previously reported on the increase in designers using raw, tactile materials to convey a sense of quality and connoisseurship. For more examples, see our Sensoria design direction.
