Espresso Machine Gets the Brutalist Treatment


The newest product from Californian design studio Montaag succeeds at re-imagining traditional espresso machines with an added dash of Brutalism. Raw and concrete, Brutalist architecture was born in the 1950s and remained popular until the mid-1970s with an industrial aesthetic that was stark and minimalist.


The machine also comes available in white with wood detailing. The 15kg concrete “AnZa” espresso machine was created to introduce surprising elements into the kitchen, as well as to blend beauty and functionality into an all-in-one coffee gadget.


The AnZa is presently in the funding phase following four years of development and just US$25,000 away from its crowdfunding goal of US$130,000.

The first AnZa espresso machines will only be available for purchase in March 2018, but two models of the example can be seen in Selfridges’ London store in the UK.
