Iron+teapot / teapot


The Iron+eapot is designed for the business man who has to stay short in the hotel during his business trip.

Considering his needs in the morning, washing and getting dressed, finishing the breakfast and being on time in conference, we come up with this concept of combining teapot and iron to make the most of his time.

Not until the water boiled do we turn off the heater, making a cup of coffee, then, ironing with the remaining heat as well!

The whole idea emphasizes on simple, fast, and convenience. The greatest value of this design is that we make the best use of heat in a clever way, practice energy recycling in an easy way.
