This far-out design, called Nanopack, offers a new way to store leftovers in handy, cube-shaped packages. It consists of googols of tiny nano-robots which have the ability to rearrange themselves to create solid forms. Simply place a Nanopack on your food and it will spread out, enclose it and shape it into perfectly sized cubes! By squeezing around the food, it maintains the food form and quality, leaving no air or moisture pockets, thereby saving money and reducing waste.

Surphase is the ultimate in portable cooking! The multipurpose cooking appliance can be used to heat and cook or even to cool food. Thanks to its flexible form, the cooking process can be done either on a flat surface (like a hob) or bent to provide multidirectional heat like an oven. Users can even grill steak by wrapping the surface around the meat. The design’s versatility not only saves space and time at home, but its portability encourages users to prepare their own food while away or traveling.

Taste Bud works like it sounds, but with even greater functionality! Working in tandem with a native smartphone app, its the ultimate kitchen assistant. It uses a combination of sensors to detect food temperature, freshness and preparedness. Tap into an egg to see if it’s safe, or check the internal temperature of meats to ensure they’re thoroughly cooked. Waterproof and heat-resistant, you can even leave it in cooking food mixtures to alert you when it’s ready!

Why is it called the “Social Barbecue?” Because it was designed to bring people together, creating an entirely new barbecuing experience through innovation! The first table-safe charcoal grill of its kind, now users can gather round the picnic table and take part in the process together rather than designate a single chef who’s isolated to the side. Similar to a fondue-style dining, it fosters a convivial atmosphere of sharing and entertainment!
The Little Twist Faucet is just that: a twist on the bathroom fixture that focuses on minimalism and functionality! Rather than knobs and handles that become grimy and damaged over time, the design features a single spout-shaped key situated directly beneath the water flow. This unique placement ensures the key is always rinsed clean and makes it easy for users to wash their hands without soaping up the handles or contaminating their hands with a dirty knob. DO WANT!

What initially began as a project to design door handles in Grasshopper design software, the shapes of the Pebble collection were inspired by the designer’s curiosity and explorations using algorithms. The result is 7 uniquely shaped boards that can be used for a variety of applications from serving to cutting. Included with each is a smooth, glossy porcelain dish or cup to compliment the natural wood material. They’re as curvy and comfortable to hold as they are tough to withstand years of use, making them a timeless addition to any kitchen!
The Future hunter-gatherer’ is a device that quite literally gets you to start cooking with a virtual hunt in your kitchen.

The compact Mirex food mixer was designed to combat decreasing kitchen sizes within the home. Despite its small size, the mixing bowl retains a substantial four liters thanks to a unique combination of compact pancake motor and novel pulley system to drive two linear whisks. This allows for a vertical, slim silhouette and overall size reduction that save valuable counter space and make storing away easy.
