Barista Jaewoong Kwak worked with several designers to create a futuristic coffee-making machine that looks like an architectural model. The one-meter high device called Gothicism has a gothic steampunk look and merges CNC laser cut elements together into an intricate mechanism.

The coffee-making process begins with leaving ground coffee to steep in room temperature for up to 24 hours. The liquid then drips gradually into a vessel at the bottom of the machine, which features no heated or electrical elements. Instead, Gothicism is made from anodized aluminum, brass needle valves and borosilicate glass tubes which form the cathedral-like structure. Due to the fine craftsmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, the one-meter high Gothicism comes at a steep price-it can be purchased for $7,250, while smaller models cost around $4,050.
