the Slayer prototype - The company I designed a super sweet espresso machine for has just released the first images of the working prototype to the public. I mainly designed the exterior of the machine but also helped with some technical structural details as well. I loved working with this team, a group of hard working and dedicated individuals! The first batch of machines will be delivered in March. So far the reaction has been awesome and people love the look.

the Slayers work station - The Slayers group heads sit center stage for the coffee artist to perform their magic. User interface and comfort are huge factors when developing controls. The walnut "knife handle" actuators not only insulate the user from the heat of the brew head, they imply an intended function as a surface to be touched.
