different materials were essential. Our engineers worked up from abstract physics and chemistry to create ideal prototypes for each oven element before we even started thinking about design. Without the constraints of an existing chassis or look, we have been able to make numerous small and large leaps in innovation to create the platform. Our designers and engineers keep one key idea central: what is best for the customer? As Mitchell says, “Any good design is the optimum mix of what a customer benefits from and what’s possible. You can’t have one without the other.” For more about the final product see page 31.
