A microwave that hides in a drawer

Microwaves are great to have in a kitchen, but they tend to take up a sizable chunk of counter space. This concept design sticks a microwave in a drawer, keeping it tucked out of the way.

Sure, building a microwave underneath a counter or over the stove is already relatively common, but this design makes the appliance virtually invisible when not in use. Designed by Anoush Mortazavi, it's got a glass lid that flips open for access and controls along the top edge of the front panel. If this ever moves past the concept stage, I could see it becoming very popular in small, urban apartments.
