Power Of One 

The ‘Power of One’ is a single efficient and easy to repair circular heat source, which can be utilised in a communal fashion to carry out many common kitchen tasks and is accompanied by several unique products.

Inspired by pre-industrial cooking it carries the values of community sharing and longevity reestablishing the value of heat

To truly make an impact on e-waste consumer behaviour will have to change to remove the need for small electrical appliances completely.

A single source of heat positioned at the centre of the kitchen, providing heat for all kitchen tasks.

Reimaged stove top kettle using my design ethos. Starting with a large base to maximise contact with the heat source, fluting up to a neck with a silicone grip which acts as a multidirectional handle.

Inspired by preindustrial kitchens a pared back ultintive to the  complex design of the toaster. A simple ridged cast iron heating block.

The wide surface area allows coffee to be brewed quickly and the circular ring acts as a multidirectional handle.
