If the super HEAVY Italian espressos of the concrete Lavazza Espresso machine didn’t do it for you, maybe the super slim cups by Sharona Merlin will. These flattened cup and saucer are another awesome project coming out of  the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.

“I’m an industrial design student from Israel, studying at “Shenkar College of Engineering and Design”, starting my third year out of four. The project is made for a course of ceramic molding I took on the last semester. The title of the course was “Combination of tradition and technology” and my interpretation for this title was the way things get slimmer as technology moves forword.
Therefore, my concept was taking the traditional ceramic cup and making it slimmer. My vision was seeing the cup’s icon on the front side but as it turns, it’s slimness appears. I’m now working on designing a line of slim ceramics tableware.”
