Computer freaks and couch-potatoes belong to that bunch of folks who have their eyes glued to the screens and nothing in this world can budge them. Not to mention workaholics, who use their desks as dining tables. Nojoe Park probably addressed this niche and didn’t want these guys to die hungry. He unveiled his design of the Kitchen Drawer at the Electrolux Design Contest. The concept appliance packs the 4 essentials of a kitchen like a stainless plate to take care of preparing and warming of your meals, an electric stove, a dish drawer and a mini-fridge. The design banks on the concept of saving energy and has different heating levels that can be adjusted to cater your pot size.
If you happen to hurriedly open the plate or pull back the stove, it will automatically turn off, thereby avoiding heat burns. You could scoff the design and argue that a heating device cannot co-exist with a cooling one. Well, the maker has pushed a cushion between the two, to avoid conflict of heat and cold waves. The thermometer does the job of telling the user when it’s the apt time to pull back and pointing out whether the mini-fridge is working well or not. Presence of wheels enable smooth movement of this condensed appliance. I quite like the sound of this design and if this ever hits production frontier of Electrolux, there will be lot of pre-orders on this.
