Linje Espressomaker by Øystein Helle Husby
by Harry / February 16, 2011
From @oysteinhusby, an espresso machine made of wood. Says Husby, "the result of a Norwegian approach to coffee - a world by and large dominated by Italian influences. By defining the core values of Norway and Scandinavia, and transforming these values into a design language the result is a truly unique product."

The Linje Espressomaker is a prototype originally created by Husby, Audun Grimstad, Åsne Kydland and Mariko Kurioka Rohde as an assignment for design school. "So, what distinguishes nordic design? Wood, we thought."

Linje is made of layers of poplar wood that are glued together and then sanded down. For the "full making" of story, go here.
