This stylish and simple espresso machine design fits well inside the modern architectural aesthetic. A simple stainless steel sheet metal construction ensures an economical design.

The intention of the design is that the mechanism is seen exposed within a solid form stainless steel 'C' shape. The water tank forms the back-inside wall of the 'C' and is tinted to look like a fish tank.

Cube's contribution to this project is the concept generation and external design. Breville's in-house designers and engineers completed the design and engineering in collaboration with the manufacturer espresso machine.

This espresso machine is part of the Breville IKON range. Cube was instrumental in the conception of the IKON range - we perceived a need for a more formalised aesthetic in bench-top appliances to bring them in line with other components of the modern kitchen while not losing the essential obvious function of each type of product.
