Changing Brands – Breakfast Machines Under Foreign Flags

The concept behind this innovative and clean design was creating a toaster for a furniture brand. Wood and glass are the two main materials this toaster is made of.

You can toast two slices of toast at a time. These become toasted between special heating glasses. Each of these glass plates consists of two plates. Between these two plates is a special foil with woven metal.

To guarantee safety in using this toaster the upper and lower glass plates additionally have a foil that reflects the heat to one side. Hence only 5% of the heat radiates to the upper side and to the bottom. The glass plates are illuminated white, if they are cold, and red, if they are hot to directly show the user the temperature.

One of the basic ideas was to create a toaster that you don`t always have to move. Normally you have your toaster in the kitchen cabinet. Each time you want to use ist you have to get it and afterwards to remove it again. This toaster has a unique, timeless and sculptural design so that you don`t recognize it as a kitchen machine. Additionally you can use it as a table lamp.

In addition the toaster can be used as warming plate as for teapots, if you only use the bottom plate and let the two upper plates closed.
