Designer’s Tabletop Electric Stove

cooka_11

Came across this retro-looking table top stove that folds up and stows away easily. It’s called the “Cooka.” Here’s an excerpt from Yanko Design:

“Cooka takes away the theory that silver is only meant for cutlery and ornamental purposes. This unique tabletop electrical cooking device uses silver in its design quite generously. Banking on its thermal conductivity properties, the cooking plates use the metal effectively to heat up the utensils fast and cool down the unit even faster.

The distinctive design of Cooka makes it resemble a table mat and quite like it, you can fold it up and stow it away, till the next cooking session. The silver plates are surrounded by tiny holes that constantly blow out a stream of hot air around the utensil, so that excess heat is not lost during cooking”

September 22nd, 2008: 6 sites I visit for web design inspiration

It’s not unusual for me to browse the web for inspiration when I have a new project that comes across my plate. Here are 6 places I go on the web when I’m looking for inspiration, articles to read, and a place to connect with other designers. I wouldn’t mind networking more with people in my field of work. (Thanks to coworkers and friends for passing on some of their favorites)

  1. DC Design Babes — A Washington D.C. organization founded by two web chicks who seem to really focus on facilitating connections with other area designers through monthly meetings. (see website)
  2. Refresh DC — Another D.C. area organization dedicated to keeping the industry connected by providing a place for people to share industry happenings. (see website)
  3. Cameron Moll — A well-known Utah-based designer/speaker/author who blogs frequently. I think it’s cute that he gave his wife a little “corner” of his blog. (see his website)
  4. 19 Things Not to Do When Building a Website — Probably something every web designer and developer could benefit from reading. (see blog post)
  5. You The Designer — This website nails it. I’ve always been a fan of web (and print) posts that list things as opposed to laying out the nitty gritty in a long article, something I *try* to achieve in my own blog posts. It’s easy to read in terms of scannability and gets right to the point. Websites with thumbnails and photos are a bonus. (see website)
  6. Smashing Magazine — The best for last. A “weblog” that gives a place for designers and developers to head to when they want to keep up with the trends of the industry, such as brush sets, sample CSS code, and tips on designing across platforms.  (see weblog)
