This is one espresso maker that would look right at home in an urban loft: Espresso Solo, a cool conceptual project by Israeli designer Shmuel Linski, which uses concrete as its primary material.
The unusual espresso machine makes only espresso (short and long) and features metal working parts built into a concrete case.
I'm loving the contrast of the raw concrete against the sleek stainless steel. Check out Linski's site for a few pictures of his design process.
