Discipline: Product

This is the most compact Nespresso machine yet. It was conceived in a modular way in order to obtain two different designs while using the same components and the same industrial process. To insure a high quality while keeping the price low, the machine has been simplified to the maximum and the number of parts reduced right from the first design stage. Although simple, all the standard functions have been kept. For most of the machine’s parts, recycled plastics have been used.
