I do love a new Nespresso accessory, especially a sexy and stylish one! The coffee brand have teamed up with Berlin based industrial design studio GECKELER MICHELS to bring us the Touch Collection cups.
Inspired by the stylish design of the Nespresso machines, the Touch Collection features sleek black lines and a matt and gloss finish. The shape of the cup, with its silicon ring, pays homage to the iconic coffee capsule.
GECKELER MICHELS, known for their contemporary mix of textures and materials, chose sophisticated black pigmented porcelain to guarantee a deep brilliant colour and finish. The soft touch silicon ring with its silky texture was an intuitive solution and inspiration for the name.
Nespresso sensory experts were also involved in the design in order to make sure the cups release the intensity of aromas within Nespresso Grands Crus. Furthermore, the cups’ concave bottom ensures the optimal crema, both in terms of finesse and quantity. Finally, the compact porcelain will keep the coffee at the perfect temperature. There’s a lot to it!
“We tried to integrate the strongest identity element of Nespresso in the cup design, which is the shape of the capsule. This is reflected in the form of the upper part of each cup. The result is a cup shape with a strong silhouette which provides a subconscious hint to the brand’s identity,” explained Geckeler.
The Touch Collection will be available in four sizes: Espresso ($30 for two) Lungo ($35 for two) Cappuccino ($35 for two) and Mug ($35 for two).
