Newton Espresso
by Aladen Studio

The Newton is a manual lever-press espresso maker developed by a designer who describes his design position as "elegant form must follow function, but let's have both."

The story of Newton Espresso started with a conversation between a millennial designer asking a baby boomer toolmaker if together they could achieve creating a bespoke, beautiful espresso maker for home. The public response to the final result - the Newton Espresso Maker - was so positive it encouraged the development of one handmade machine into a carefully controlled and hand assembled production operation.
