An open letter to those who make machines


I was reading Design Spotter this week and came across a very attractive appliance. So taken was I with Pierre Ittner's Red Hot that I will declare it to be the prettiest espresso machine on the planet. Beyond looking like it was stolen from Dr. Seuss the design calls for 100% all metal construction throughout the piece.

Sadly, this design is still in need of a home. I've corresponded with Pierre, and he's currently shopping for a house willing to adopt his machine for production. This could be a perfect match for a company like Illy, Alessi, Francis Francis, Starbucks, Kitchenaid, or Target. I don't care which company sells me an espresso machine, but someone needs to get behind Ittner and bring this machine to my countertop! Truth to tell, I'm only slightly biased because the Red Hot would perfectly match my newly refinished kitchen cabinets.

Dear People Who Decide Such Things,
I am proud to fly my colors as a patron of companies which have wisely invested in designers who do not produce boring products. If your company builds this espresso machine I will buy one. What's more, I will write to encourage other people to buy this machine for themselves, and as a gift for any friend who appreciates good design and superior aesthetics.

Your buddy,
Johnny Brookheart

I would totally buy that in an annodized blue or black.

Looks like someone needs to start up a Pledge Bank petition.


That is one hot machine. It's red, it's got nice lines, and it's 100% metal. You don't see that often, especially not for kitchen appliances. I wanna test drive it!
