Caffè River’s Espressocup/2 cup perfectly combines the ideal features, both thermal and ergonomic-functional, so as to best enhance the espresso coffee experience and allow it to be enjoyed perfectly.
Its creator, as with the Espressocup/2 cup, is the designer Carlo Comanducci, an expert in mechanical design and 3D modeling. Carlo started from the conception of Espressocup/2 with the reverse engineering technique, then moved on to 3D printing rapid prototyping and then to the production of the new porcelain cups.
Style according to Caffè River
There is much to explore beyond coffee: a whole new experience is created specifically by taking care of the details. Shapes and colors, materials and surfaces succeed in enhancing perceptions and intriguing emotions.
A product of sublime quality needs to be consumed through instruments of equal worth. The coffee experience, combined with a similar style experience, becomes a ritual. We collaborate with proven inventive designers to create our objects. They are designed to meet the aesthetic need of the most demanding consumer through lines, colors, and geometries of the most impeccable stylistic terseness.
This is why we have undertaken a series of collaborations with established designers.
In 2007, we initiated a workshop called “Riverberazioni” (Reverberations), in which designers like Enrico Azzimonti, Alessandra Baldereschi, Luisa Bocchietto, Marina Bologni, Roberto Giacomucci, Monica Graffeo, Gum Design, Joe Velluto, Lorenzo Palmeri, Alessandra Pasetti, Lucy Salamanca and ZP studio participated, designing – in collaboration and competition with each other – a series of objects aimed at making our coffee experience unique.
We then continued our collaboration with Marina Bologni who designed Flexo and Kylix (9 and 36) for us, and with Roberto Giacomucci who designed MaracaS, Sweetcase and Minisweetcase.
