Cut The Crap / Toaster/Kettle

Cut The Crap
Cut The Crap

A reaction on todays short life-span products a kettle and a toaster was designed with intention of spreading knowledge of how things work and giving the user an understanding of how they can be repaired by letting the user assemble it. Cork and stainless steel are the main materials. Cork has many good properties fitting the product category. The interest of recycled cork grows steadily. Steel is a durable material that already exists in a closed loop production cycle. A part of the concept was to reduce the amount of parts. A toaster and a kettle together usually consist of around 125 parts. The component count of my two products is 25.
