Entry Description

Flame is a sustainable kettle that is produced from %100 recyclable materials without any plastic usage. Originating in traditional copper-kettles, design combines copper and stainless steel in a harmonic way and parts are fit together without requiring a joining process.
Combining a contemporary style with local and cultural elements, it matches perfectly with modern elegant kitchens.
Material selection also reflects the sensitivity on the taste of water. Also heat conduction is more efficient with copper, therefore energy is preserved with reduced boiling time.
Carbon foot print is considerably lowered with elimination of extra processes and chemicals in production, low-cost materials and efficient usage of parts. Being also durable, Flame ages beautifully with its aesthetic texture and has a prolonged life as an object of everyday life. Having the potential of turning into an iconic stovetop kettle with a forged-copper look, it promises an eco-friendly and meaningful experience.
Flame can be used for local development, as it offers a product with an added value using local material and human resources. In regions where traditional hand-forged items are created, Flame shall be quite applicable and valuable. In this project, a glocal vision is embraced with an emphasis on sustainability.
