Design Fridays: Meet George Jetson’s…Coffee Machine
Is that a coffee machine or Skynet’s new Terminator model?
Kees Van der Westen has been designing and handbuilding coffee machines since the ’80s. Okay it’s an espresso machine, not a coffee machine. Or maybe a brand new racing engine. I, for one, welcome our new machine overloads. Especially when they spit out delicious, caffeinated espresso.
Of course, this one is only the newest model. And despite its resemblance to the torture device Darth Vader uses on Princess Leia I still think it has a certain machine charm to it. So I leave you also with one of his earlier designs that looks like something out of the Jetsons. Or more appropriately, something with some 1950s charm, like an old hot rod.
