The 'ZEEN' espresso coffee machine features a distinctly modern design aesthetic that is unlike anything that would have been previously seen in a coffee house prior. Designed by Chung-Yen Chang, the 'ZEEN' coffee machine features a convex mirror on the back portion that distorts the surrounding area in order to bring a new perception to the space.

The 'ZEEN' coffee machine creates espresso coffee beverages in the same way that traditional machines would, but features a design that is more socially conscious about the cafe experience. While the back portion of the 'ZEEN' espresso coffee machine reflects its surroundings in a surreal way, the low-level design of the unit allows baristas to see over and interact with patrons.
