Aside from the fact that the Nespresso Toaster can look like a picnic basket when two are put side by side, this kitchen appliance concept is very sleek and minimalist (two components of very contemporary designs). Inspired by Nestlé’s Nespresso Expresso Coffee Products, the Nespresso Toaster hopes to liven up people's breakfast routines.

Designed by Bruno Fosi in collaboration with home appliance manufacturing company Flama as a Product Design & Development Academic project, the Nespresso Toaster features a playful toasting process. Essentially, you place a piece of bread in it and then push the steel handle down. As the Nespresso Toaster gets to work, the handle slowly rises back to its original position. Once there, you give it a little nudge and the toast pops up.
