Printing Your Toast


Congratulations to one of my MA students at Luzern, Othmar Mühlebach, who has just won the second prize at the Berner Design Awards for his toaster re-design. Based on the idea of a printer, you lay a stack of bread at the top and each slice runs through the toaster.

Given the trend for burning designs onto toast, I expect Othmar’s design could be modified to burn any kind of graphic. Might overheat the USB cable though.
