Leica might be most well-known for its photography products, but the brand has branched out to create a kitchen toaster with a similar aesthetic to its cameras. The toaster is designed for everyday use with an exterior that resembles a camera's aesthetic with curvaceous features and buttons that are a replica of the ones seen on well-made photography equipment.

The toaster is a combined effort by PDF Design and creative Hyunmook Lim that replicates the look and feel of camera parts to create a kitchen appliance. The toaster opts for rounded edges and a slender shape that is unconventional to the standard rectangular design. The appliance fits two pieces of bread and comes in either a black, white or grey color scheme. The camera's famed red logo is located on the side of the toaster as well.
