Shape memory Kettle / Kettle

Shape memory Kettle
Shape memory Kettle

For a long time, the existing kettles have kept their standardized shapes. Not only this shape makes troubles to wash mouth but also it is easy to lose because the lid is separated. In order to solve these inconveniences, I suggest the new kettle which aim at the future concept using advanced materials. Using shape memory effect, it has the basic form of the cylinder when you put in water in the kettle. And when the water boils, it revert to the original shape which is remembered the first time of processing. Body is naturally in charge of the mouth and the lid by themselves at the transformation temperature.
