"Untitled" the winner of the Second Nespresso Design Competition looks more like
a nightlight than an espresso machine.

Nespresso always have the most amazing designs for their single serve coffee machines. Recently they held an awards ceremony for their second design contest in Milan. In total 4 winners were announced, including:

  • First place was awarded to Brice Genre and Hanika Perez of the Université Toulouse Le Mirail in France for their creative design, "Untitled," which is an incredibly original coffee maker resembling a thermosensitive work of art that gradually changes appearance thanks to the heat of the water. Renowned designer Giulio Cappellini from Italy presented the €12,000 cash prize to the two students
  • The second-place award went to Andreas Diefenbach from Staatliche Akademie Der Bildenden Künste in Germany. His design was entitled, "Pearl," a round coffee-maker with a luxurious design.
  • Millete Balazs and Telekes Tamas from MOME - Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Hungary, was the third-place winner with their in-flight coffee machine, "Enjoy It While Flying."
  • The Special mention was awarded to Francois Saudubray from EID in France for his "SOPRANO" design. An ingenious system of covers, each with a colour that is association with a particular Nespresso Grand Cru, makes it possible to preserve the aroma of coffee while recognizing one's cup.
