The Udon Noodle Box Modernizes Form and Function by the Mouthful

Naturally, people have come to appreciate gadgets that carry out one function very well, promising to reliably save them time and energy in completing everyday tasks. The Electrolux Udon Noodle Box has been designed to prepare the perfect serving of the thick Asian pasta so that you can focus on perfecting the ingredients to go with it.

There's nothing simple about the way that this device looks, despite its straightforward function. It has been formally inspired by the art of origami, flaunting a creased, multifaceted and bright white skin. From above the flexible silicone lid escapes a pointy protrusion, acting as a handle and a set of chopsticks when removed. All of the electronic features of Andrew van der Merwe's Udon Noodle Box are cutting-edge and impressive, including the built-in ultraviolet germicidal radiation emitter for easy cleaning.
