Israel-based multidisciplinary designer Roee Ben Yehuda has unveiled his latest creation – a coffee maker for the minimalists dubbed MOON. Taking inspiration from the “steampunk” look of the traditional Italian espresso machine, the creative has come up with a modern take on the home appliance.
Boasting a monochromatic palette of cream and mauvish gray, the design arrives in an egg shape. Two gauges are placed at the front, along with a water reservoir attached to the right and coffee bean hopper to the left. Complete with two round cone legs, the coffee maker features MOON branding just above the drip tray. For your daily dose of coffee, all you have to do is simply place an espresso cup beneath the cylinder spout.
The appliance seen above is a test model made using polyurethane foam, but the scientific yet cute gadget may be available for purchase sometime in the future.

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 settle on my concept I thought 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? #coffeemaker #espressomachine #lemanoosh #renderweekly #coffeemachine #studentdesign #designburger #プロダクトデザイン #コーヒーメーカー #productdesign #productdaily
