under the supervision of alex padwa and david spectre, students at the shenkar college
of engineering and design, ramat gan were encouraged to look closely at the various
daily coffee rituals and consumptions for their coffee culture project. here are a few
images of the works they developed.

into the glass a contrast between the translucent exterior and coffee is visible.
