Vessel Ideation: One

by Karen Day in Design on 31 March 2009

Chicago-based multidisciplinary design team Vessel Ideation took home first place at this year's World Kitchen Tea-Off with their pot-and-kettle combo aptly called One.

Designed to both boil and serve, the single vessel has an intuitive magnetic trivet that attaches to its base only when the kettle is hot, allowing for a seamless motion from stove to tabletop. In lieu of a whistle, the kettle's thermochromic ink used in the decorative pattern surrounding the base becomes visible once the water inside has reached the boiling point, alerting you to its readiness.

To see a full demonstration on the One's capabilities, check out the video online.
