TOSHARE 2015 Entry Selected #3


Carlo Galli (IT)

“Safe coffee” is a proposal of an interactive installation. It’s a security camera that lost its original function of being a hot coffee dispenser.This proposal is about an in-site specific installation which can be used to benefit participation in having a cup of coffee. One manual button brews the hot beverage, a conscious activity which can be hand operated rather than automatically or electronically.This coffee machine becomes an instrument to give a warm welcome from the family to the guests.
