Italian Mid-century Travel Espresso Set Coffee Maker

About the Item

Beautiful and complete mid-century Italian Lucciola Espresso travel set with Espresso machine which works both on 12 and 220 volts, a detachable espresso cup holder, two stunning green celluloid espresso cups and plates and two containers for coffee and sugar. This so very Italian set comes from my private collection. I bought it more than 25 years ago when I was living in Milano. Espresso (/ɛˈsprɛsoʊ/ (listen), Italian: [eˈsprɛsso]) is a coffee-brewing method of Italian origin, in which a small amount of nearly boiling water (about 90 °C or 190 °F) is forced under 9–10 bars (900–1,000 kPa; 130–150 psi) of pressure through finely-ground coffee beans. Espresso can be made with a wide variety of coffee beans and roast degrees. Espresso is the most common way of making coffee in southern Europe, especially in Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal.

  • Arne Jacobsen Mid-Century Modern Ice Bucket
    By Arne Jacobsen
    Located in Weesp, NL
    A classically elegant Minimalist design and styled ice bucket from the Cylinda series for Laufer Stelton, from the 1964-1967 MoMA collection. Arne Jacobsen Designer (Danish, 1902-1971). Great addition to any bar, wine tasting room or entertaining friends. The Cylinda Line series was awarded the ID-prize in 1967 by The Danish Society of Industrial Design and the International Design Award in 1968 by The American Institute of Interior Designers. It now also has a permanent place at Cooper-Hewitt, NY / MoMa, NY / Victoria & Albert Museum, London making it a truly Classic product. Today, Arne Jacobsen is remembered primarily for his furniture designs. However, he believed he was first and foremost an architect. According to Scott Poole, a professor at Virginia Tech, Arne Jacobsen never used the word 'designer', notoriously disliking it. His way into product design came through his interest in Gesamtkunst and most of his designs which later became famous in their own right were created for architectural projects. One of his first furniture designs was the Paris lounge chair from 1929 which was also displayed as a part of the interior design of his famous “House of the Future". Most of his furniture designs were the result of a cooperation with the furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen with which he initiated a collaboration in 1934 while his lamps and light fixtures were developed with Louis Poulsen. In spite of his success with his chair at the Paris Exhibition in 1925, it was during the 1950s that his interest in furniture design peaked. A major source of inspiration stemmed from the bent plywood designs of Charles and Ray Eames. He was also influenced by the Italian design historian Ernesto Rogers, who had proclaimed that the design of every element was equally important "from the spoon to the city" which harmonized well with his own ideals. In 1951, he created the Ant chair for an extension of the Novo pharmaceutical factory and, in 1955, came the Seven Series. Both matched modern needs perfectly, being light, compact and easily stackable. Two other successful chair designs, the Egg and the Swan, were created for the SAS Royal Hotel which he also designed in 1956. Other designs were made for Stelton, a company founded by his foster son Peter Holmbl. These include the now classic Cylinda Line stainless steel cocktail kit...
