Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc wanted to transform the mundane role and duties of housewives and raise the expectations we have of kitchen appliances by giving this mini-hotplate a new haute-couture image.

The world premiere of the Mrs. Dalloway mini hotplate from Gorenje, reminiscent more of a cult fashion accessory than of an actual cooking appliance, took place at Milan Design Week in May this year where Zupanc had her own solo exhibition at Super Studio Piu.

The item shown in Milan was a prototype, but according to Gorenje it is considering the possibility of mass production. I for one hope so, after all Mrs Dalloway is the ultimate kitchen accessory.
