Toast

Check out the FB10 made in 1950 by Kolster Brandes.  Originally marketed as The Magic Midget and now more commonly known as The Toaster.

Moulded in one piece with no cardboard back, it looks good from any angle and the controls cleverly sit, neatly balancing the shape, in the bottom corners like little feet.

At only 25 x 17 x 16 cm, it is indeed a tiny little thing and a dead ringer for a 1950’s toaster, both a wonderful piece of practical design.
