The Ceramic Art Kettle, designed by Eliumstudio for Rowenta, is an appliance that combines an immaculate aesthetic with innovative sensibility. The French-based design firm, Eliumstudio, has repeatedly refined the elegance of household objects with a number of high-caliber creations; this kettle is no different.
The minimal beauty of this piece is unmistakable. However, its true identity lies within the object itself. Don Norman would even agree with the intelligent utilization of constraints on the elastomer lid. Acting as a safety, the lid retains the scalding liquid within the kettle even if knocked over. The contrasts on this piece only add value to its style. The juxtaposition of the kettle’s glossy white and matte silver allows the piece to preserve its sleek nature while remaining relatively inconspicuous.
