Essenza Mini Nespresso is an extremely compact capsule coffee machine made largely of recycled plastic. The focus of the design was on the challenge of simplifying its construction so that it can be produced with fewer components, cost-effectively, but with the same high quality. The result is a machine which is a considerably reduced and modular concept, in order to achieve two very different designs while using the same components.
Statement by the Jury
This coffee machine impresses by its consistent reduction, which succeeds both in its use of cost-effective materials as well as its purist aesthetics.
