Digital Cutting Board

Digital Cutting Board

The Almighty Board is the ultimate kitchen assistant. This smart-board will simultaneously serve as your cutting board, display your recipes, provide step-by-step directions and weigh your ingredients out for you. After you wash it, it will even tell you if it has been cleaned enough to avoid cross-contamination or food poisoning. If only it could do the dishes too!

Smart Cookin'

Smart Cookin’

Set to hit markets by the end of this year, the IQcook by Gorenje aims to reinvent the way we cook. The magnetic smart sensor, which can be placed on any lid, allows completely safe and controlled cooking while also providing up to 40% power savings. The device syncs wirelessly with the cooking hob to regulate heat so the user can concentrate on the rest of their cooking without having to worry about water boiling over or food being over-cooked. It’s about time we had something like this!

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

There’s a little light in every wonderful project, and here on Yanko Design we’ve got to appreciate the tools just as much as the ideas we produce – for example here a tiny light producer called “T Light”. What this little lamp is essentially a lightbulb in a coffee cup covered by a bit of cloth which enhances the overall quality of your experience. Look like your cuteness to go?

Tea Chemistry

Tea Chemistry

I am totally enchanted by this beautiful Chemicus set. Designed as a service set for Russian chemists/patriots and adorning the a traditional Gzhel pattern, the repurposed laboratory test tubes and beakers set reminds me of the other chemical reactions that took place in our school Chemistry Lab. Don’t worries dears…I don’t kiss and tell!

Enduring Espresso

Enduring Espresso

Wonsang Lee’s twist on the espresso machine appears ultra-modern, but takes inspiration from traditional Korean houses which are often designed to focus on exposure to outdoor landscaping. Like the traditional homes, the center of this design is where all the magic happens. Its open midsection is not only aesthetically unique, but an intuitive signal for where the user should place their mug.

Not Your Granny's Kettle

Not Your Granny’s Kettle

The word ‘kettle’ itself has a sort of antiquated, old-school ring to it, doesn’t it? With this in mind, designer Felipe Arnador redesigned the classic Braun brand kettle to appeal to the younger user. Its sleek appearance is made possible by a double surface layer that produces a vacuum between the interior and exterior, keeping the user’s hand safe from heat and eliminating the need for a handle.

Divide and Conquer the Balloon Whisk

Divide and Conquer the Balloon Whisk

Cleaning a whisk can be a challenge, especially if you are working with a sticky mixture or thick dough. Divisible is a clever design that addresses this issue, as well as the storage. The whisk simple splits in half, straightening the curvy wires and facilitating easy cleaning. By far the most hygienic cleaning solution, demonstrated brilliantly in the accompanying video.

Kitchen Design for Now and When You Are Ninety!

Kitchen Design for Now and When You Are Ninety!

Disturbed by the way their ninety-year-old ‘Nan’ has to struggle in her current kitchen scenario, Product Tank has designed this compatible Kitchen 02. It’s compatible in the sense that both the sliver generation and the young-guns can use it easily. Like they say, “This is not a Kitchen for a Michelin starred chef, just an old lady who wants to remain independent and cook herself simple meals.”

Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in Bed

hotspot / breakfast is an excellent way to pamper yourself or a loved one. The setup is a fully functional breakfast tray with components like a toaster, a kettle and an espresso pot; all designed with a classic touch. Too bad it didn’t hit the market during this past Valentine’s week. It sure would have made many of us ladies happy…. being served breakfast in bed!
