Art + Science Meet in the Kitchen:
These small kitchen appliances from SMEG, as well as large appliances like this Bluestar oven, represent great examples of the growing trend of product personalization.

This Qwerkywriter keyboard – which looks, feels and sounds like a traditional typewriter – has been around since 2016.

It caught our attention because it’s fun, well-built, and allows people who spend most of their day on a keyboard to make a personal statement.
