Is there are time in the near future when kitchen technologies mean we no longer have a mere cooker but instead have self-cleaining transportable cooking units? If so then that unit wukk most probably be called, Qumi, a fold out universal kitchen set that can be used for heating, frying and steaming a wide variety of food - even for cookings soups and sauces.
The concept features no display or control panel, and all instructions are supposed to be processed via mobile devices. The idea is that the plate shaped disc heats up with the globe on top containing foods.
Qumi takes up little space (no more than a dinner plate) and is designed to be hung on an induction charging hook, making it wireless and portable.
The idea is from Russian designer, Ilia Vostro, and made it to the semi-finals of the Electrolux concept design competition.
The team at Don Julio have taken over an unloved corner of Buenos Aires. Organic produce harvested at the community-focused urban garden Huerta Luna de Enfrente will exclusively benefit local soup kitchens. Read on for the full story.
