From designers Burcu Bag, Amalia Monica & Vinay Raj Somashekar comes the Halo flexible toaster concept.  

Sure, toasters are great, but their design hasn’t changed much in the last 50 years. In many cases, toasters are bulky, crummy, and just generally unattractive, but many of us resist tossing them because “they still work”.

On a side note here – recycle these poor toasty bastards if you can – our landfills are top-filled enough. In an effort to create a more future-friendly alternative, our bread-benefiting designers have created the Halo toaster concept to help make best use of your counter space and also show off to your friends just how cool you really are.

At first glance, the Halo looks like a thin griddle, with a black heating surface and gunmetal grey border.
