Nespresso Coffee Machine
I designed the Nespresso Coffee Machine originally as an Senseo pad machine a couple of years ago. In 2013 I stumbled upon the old sketches from 2009 and decided to give my old design a slight redesign.
The form study of the Nespresso Coffee Machine is designed to be the center of your kitchen. For some, drinking coffee is a ritual performed several times a day at specific moments. Drinking coffee is very important for them. This coffee machine must give the coffee drinker the feeling that they are special.
I designed two versions, one which can make one coffee and one that can make two coffees at the same time. For both coffee machines I was looking for an intuitive way of loading the cups into the machine, without compromising the design. I came up with a slide. If you pull the lid up, you can load the cups into the cup-shaped-hole(s). If you want the coffee machine to start you simply push the whole lid down. Because there is no need for buttons the design can be sleek and functional.
