Glowbelly Steamboat

  • Is Singaporean designer Tan Lun Cheak a mindreader? Just the other day we were thinking about how if all products should had at least two distinct functions, then the world would need half as much stuff.

    Then today we stumbled upon a Dezeen post about the Glowbelly Steamboat, Cheak's table lamp slash hot pot. Made of glass, the components of the lamp can be reconfigured to form a "steamboat," in which food is cooked by dipping it into a simmering pot of stock.

    The project is part of an exhibition called Imprints: Designing for Memories at the National Museum of Singapore.

    Mr. Cheak, if you're reading our minds, please stop, it's creepy. Otherwise, keep the smart designs coming.
