This stylised, two-dimensional print is based on promotional material produced by the domestic appliance company, Braun. The text was compiled by Hamilton from Braun advertisements. Toaster reflects Hamilton's interest in consumer culture and modern design. He wrote of Braun's chief designer: 'My admiration for the work of Dieter Rams is intense and I have for years been uniquely attracted towards his design sensibility; so much so that his consumer products have come to occupy a place in my heart and consciousness that the Mont Sainte-Victoire did in Cézanne's.'
