The Linje. Norwegian Wood Espresso Machine. Oslo.

Made from Populus wood. Created by Øystein Husby, Audun Grimstad, Åsne Kydland and Mariko Kurioka Rohde. Their goal was to take a very Italian experience and transform it into something much more Norwegian through design. I think they’ve succeeded. "We were contacted by the Norwegian coffee production house Solberg & Hansen to design an espresso maker for the Norwegian market for whole coffee beans (...) We have a unique landscape of mountains and vast forests and thus the shape of mountains and use of wood became our inspiration (...) This is combined with a focus on ease of use, and most important – the ability to brew an excellent cup of coffee."
