Countertop microwaves are often designed with a futuristic control panel and a design that makes it look like a spaceship, but the design of this microwave goes against this aesthetic.

Designed by Myeonghoon Lee and Eunshin Chin, the microwave features a very contemporary yet minimalistic design that is inherently simple. Featuring only a knob, the appliance does away with digital screens and buttons to keep the unit as simple to use as possible.

The countertop microwave features a window that enables an accompanying oven mitt to be placed in it to ensure that you've always got one on hand for piping hot foods. The microwave, although modern, goes against the design aesthetic that has permeated the industry to provide an alternative that's fashion-forward.
