Table Magic Revolutionizes Quick And Healthy Cooking In A Pleasant And Unique Way

Ever thought that one day you’ll be cooking on a device just like a table cloth inside your house or even outside, in your very own backyard? This ingenious cooking device, was designed by Sara Laczo, a young designer from Hungary. Being a product oriented to Philips’s design language, Sara had to create a feminine, simple and natural shape, but not too futuristic. It’s very interesting that from all the cooking accessories that are present in an everyday kitchen, Sara picked up the table cloth for her inspiration. The simple shape of the table cloth and its ability to be spread on a table,  were the starting points. The Magic Table, as the designer named it, is composed of layers, stacked one on top of the other to create the perfect cooking tool. It has an edge that can light up to interact with the user. When the light is red the magic table is switched on, the light is blue when the product is on, but the cooking surface is not hot and when the light turns orange the product is warm, but the cooking surface is touchable.

Around this lighted edge, the designer has fitted a tangible edge. This has been colored in oxide green to create a contrast and is made from PVC or silicone. Cooking on the table magic is like having a mobile kitchen which you can push in the backyard to cook on a sunny day. The next layers are the Teflon coating and the heaters. The Teflon ensures that the food won’t stick to the surface making it easier to clean. The heaters are made from silicone and are arranged in such a way that can be heated up separately. The operating temperature is up to 260 degrees Celsius, pretty awesome for a 1,5 mm thick heater. The wire grid is built in the insulation, this insulation is a silicon foam and has a grid etched in its surface for the wire grid to fit perfectly.Going further though the layers, we find the Teflon insulation. This is the most important part of the device, as this gives it the ability to be folded or bended. The device has attached on one of the corners an operational panel. This panel can be fitted when the user wants to use the device and remove it after he/she has done cooking. The panel has a touch screen interface so the user can easily adjust the time and temperature.

The always present in a contemporary kitchen, the table cloth, has been redesigned and given a new role. Sara also won the second prize given by Philips Design Department in Amsterdam, Holland with the Table Magic, design that was submitted to the Quick and Healthy Cooking category.

Once again Thermaltake teamed up with DesignworksUSA (BMW Group) to launch the next level of innovative gaming accessories. This design consultancy has developed Level 10 M Mouse as the first product which will be released in spring 2012. DesignworksUSA has worked with many industries with only one goal that is to transfer design know how between cultures, markets and industries in order to deliver the most innovative, forward thinking and consumer oriented design solutions. The first time Thermaltake partnered with DesignworksUSA was in 2009 when the design studio was asked to design the Level 10 high end gaming tower. The collaboration has triggered a lot of praise and won many awards for its revolutionary design approach to computer housing. Thermaltake wanted to take this collaboration to the next level by increasing the Level 10 experience to a range of gaming peripherals for Thermaltake’s e-sports division.

Level 10 M Mouse represents revolutionary thinking of these industrial designers when applying the Level 10 design language to additional products. This project’s goal is to bring the Level 10 gaming experience to the next level by applying the design language of Level 10 chassis onto products which by nature require ergonomic design solutions. DesignworksUSA design team came up with smart and innovative solutions to all pro-gamers that speak the same language as Level 10 with enjoyable and pleasant device for heavy use. Level 10 M Mouse is coming but we still don’t know the exact release date and price information.
