Name: Espresso Set
Designer: The Federal
Location: Ontario, Canada
Espresso Set is a minimalist design created by Canada-based designers The Federal. This espresso set was an exercise in 3D printing ceramic materials. The designers had never heard of this printing process before and immediately had to try it. They wanted to take a different look at the standard, round cup.
With these cups, you can only drink from one end. The curvature of the cup, paired with the dimensions, makes it still perfectly usable, despite being square in appearance from the outside. The Federal completed the pairing with a small sugar dish, wooden spoon and thin wooden tray for nesting each component together.
