not just another coffee machine

I know. I have a bit of a coffee obsession. Three coffee machine modeled in just a few months. But honestly, vintage bean juicers are a thing of beauty. This one is the KF20 Aromaster, designed in 1972 by Florian Seiffert for Braun, which back then was still a German company and one of the … Continued

Emma’s Place (V-Ray)

Meet Emma’s Place, a not-too-subtle homage to Swedish blogger extraordinaire Emma Fexeus. This one was long in the making.
