iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2017

Tilting and pouring is a key point of Chinese culture in drinking water. But common water purifiers only have pushing lever to pour water. KETTLE, the new water purifier, suggests familiar experience of pouring water like using kettle in Chinese culture. And also to solve the oil pollution caused by Chinese food, KETTLE has washable fabric cover instead of plastic housing. It can decorate the water purifier with fabric's patterns or color.

With a simple and appealing appearance, this design may remind users of past experiences. The integrity and details of the product proves that it is a mature work.
