A number of kitchen appliances like rice cookers are being given stylish overhauls as seen with the conceptual 'Midea' as a means of making them more contemporary in aesthetic. The 'Midea' cooker is the design work of Abel Seo and is intended to be a great piece of equipment for cooking rice to perfection from start to finish.
The appliance features a lunar cycle-inspired cooking indicator that shifts to let you know when the rice is ready. This is done as a way to anticipate the food being ready to eat in the same way that we anticipate the full moon to come about.
The 'Midea' appliance changes the aesthetic assumption for rice cookers that they have to have a somewhat simple design and that they can be designed with style in mind.
