NOUVEAU / Lightwave Oven Range


When you are about to eat simple meal, NOUVEAU instructs the start of a pleasant meal. The rough, flat and rectangular shaped microwave has reborn in a mysterious magical bead shape. The NOUVEAU's surface, comprised of 100pieces of triangular cell, visually provides the cooking process. The tedium felt while waiting in front of the microwave is turned into joy, and the users who are curious of 'how much and which portion of the food is heating up' can now observe how much and which part of the food is being heated up. A new world that was invisible unfolds before the eyes once you turn it on.
