Thank the Australians for reintroducing a design classic from Italy: the Sorrentina espresso maker, designed by Giordano Robbiati, and otherwise known as The Atomic. Milanese-born Robbiati created the iconic Atomic coffee maker in the late 1940s; his machine produces up to six espresso shots and steams and froths milk. Australian company Ikon Exports recently came out with a premium reproduction of Robbiati's patented coffee machine, manufactured to the same dimensions and standards. In the US, Taylor & Ng is the exclusive retailer. Above: Made of polished alloy and Bakelite, the  Sorrentina  is $449 AU (approximately $413 US) and ships to the US.
