Gravity Toaster

Electronic waste is the most rapidly growing form of waste in the world. Our rapid rate of technological advancement, coupled with widespread consumerism and insufficient regard for product and material lifecycle, mean that e-waste gathers at an exponential rate. This has to be addressed. Many cheap home appliances are designed to serve their purpose for a short period before failing and being disposed of. The Gravity Toaster is an appliance that allows easy disassembly and reuse of all its parts in an attempt to prevent any part of it going to waste. It focuses on reducing unnecessary parts and rearranging product architecture in order to better afford modularity and reuse.
