What happens when a modern design studio and an espresso machine repair shop share the same business space in Berkeley, California? This may sound like the setup to a strange joke, but the real story behind AnZa is no laughing matter. And its new product, the AnZa Espresso Machine is far from a punch line.
Set to go into production early in 2018, the AnZa is unlike any other espresso machine you’ve ever encountered. Able to serve up a cup of fine espresso as well as any other machine on the market, this exclusive product truly sets itself apart in terms of its stark and striking design.
The AnZa Espresso Machine is part high-end kitchen appliance and part fine art object. It is available in both concrete and Corian models.
It goes without saying that these two materials have never before been used in the manufacture of an espresso machine. The concrete AnZA presents overtones of Brutalism that are softened by contrasting white ceramic accents, while the Corian AnZa playfully reflects the ubiquitous material of the common kitchen countertop.
Striving for simplicity and cleanness of design, the AnZa Espresso Machine incorporates only a few other essential materials: brass, steel, wood, and glass. Its ergonomic interfaces are incredibly easy to operate and incredibly easy on the eyes.
