Crazy or Creative? Transparent Toaster

Toaster is a common kitchen appliance for most of home. There is nothing special of it and in most cases, it is just a plain metal box. Hence, industrial designer James Stumpf tries to re-design it and making your toasting experience a bit interesting. Named ” Bamboo Glass Toaster”, it is a conceptual “top-down” toaster that is made up of glass and bamboo with heat element stripes and a digital timer to notify you when the toast is ready.
