The ZEEN coffee machine was designed to connect the barista and drinker for an enhanced espresso experience! Using different mirrored surfaces, including a distorting mirror and convex mirror, customers can see their cuppa joe come to life in an entirely new way.
The distorting mirror installed at the front interface reflects the coffee drops and amplifies it into a dynamic pattern. The prefect convex mirror at the back side faces toward customers and reflects the surrounding atmosphere.
Designer: Chung-Yen Chang
“This project is based on the concept of amplifying performance through reflection. The performance is influenced by reflected surface of “ZEEN” and movement of surroundings. It concentrates everything without exception on a single image. With things moving in the context, various effects are shown through immediate reflection of current situation,” Chung-Yen told Yanko Design.
“With the new feature, “ZEEN” engages entire environment as well as people into the coffee dialogue to simulate more emotions and increase the dynamic of social activities.”
