Huge design ideas at Summer shows – Royal College of Art

Velo presso was a clear star at the Royal College of Art’s Design School show this summer in Battersea, and this is why…

Velopresso is a celebratory fusion of human

power, sensory pleasures and technology

— old tech with hi-tech, bicycles and coffee,

their engineering and aesthetics.

The result is an innovative pedal-powered

mobile coffee-making machine for off-grid

selling of quality espresso and its derivatives

with a compact footprint and near silent

ultra-low carbon human-powered operation —

fine coffee, no electricity, no motors, no noise.
