Toronto-based industrial designer Taodi has developed a rectilinear electric kettle which in its simplicity, solves the problem for those with limited kitchen counter space. Its dimensions of 15cm x 24cm x 5.6cm enables the typical volume of water in most cordless kettles. As described by Taodi:
This cordless kettle celebrates simplicity: water tank, handle, and power base; all are understated. However, when taken together as a whole, they quietly express the flow of water and power through the elements.
I love the concept of this kettle being minimalist in its appearance and still provides for a more efficient living. Its narrow form not only takes up less space, but will be easier to clean than other pitcher-shaped kettles. So sleek and clean in its exterior interface, this conceptual project is highly requested and Taodi is currently looking for partners to bring it into production.
