Seppl: A Porcelain Espresso Maker by Arvid Häusser

New-York based Bauhaus design student and product designer Arvid Häusser is the designer behind Seppl, a porcelain espresso machine. He chose to use porcelain—a material we don't often see in appliances anymore—because of its thermal storage capabilities, sanitation and ease of cleaning. Plus, visually, it appeals to a wide-range of tastes.

The unit is wall-mounted to be less space-intrusive, and extensions on top of the piece add sculptural interest and provide the perfect place to keep espresso cups handy. He separated the components of the machine, adding visual interest and transparency to the coffee-making process—less magical, more visual.

A few of us at Design.org might be drooling over this just a little. One item we found to be especially beautiful here (and have noticed a general resurgence in) is the use of polished wood elements in product and industrial design.
