_KETORU: ELECTRIC POUR-OVER KETTLE


Background

Design intent was to redesign the electric kettle, focusing on culture, tradition and elegant silhouettes that add value to the coffee and tea drinking experience. 

Outcome

Inspired by Japanese aesthetics, gooseneck spout drip pots, and Christopher Dresser’s 1876 Watering Can, Ketoru (the Japanese word for kettle) is an electric kettle that combines trend and tradition in a beautiful, minimalist form.

The curvature of the design allows for a high quality surface transition, creating a continuous surface where light can evenly and smoothly move around the form without reflections breaking. This can be easily seen in the polished steel version.
