Seeing as coffee and forward-thinking contemporary design are two of our favourite things here at Slamxhype, it’s always pleasing to see the two combined into one. Designed by Nico Tritschler for the 2012 iF Design Talents Awards, the Conceptone. SC1 is a fully automatic coffee machine that answers the above brief rather nicely. Compact and lightweight, the appliance works via a user-friendly two-touch slider placed on top of the machine. For those who like to see the inner workings of a mechanical object, the SC1 is designed to showcase the flow of water through the machine while it works its way to brewing the coffee. Water and coffee bean reservoirs sit on the left and right sides of the appliance and the faceplates are interchangeable and can be customized with any color.
