A competition called “Tea-off” held sponsored by “World Kitchen” has announced its winner for 2009. There are 237 entries and finally, we got three winners and 25 honorees. Followings are the picture of three winnes, the first one is my favorite, that is really cool.
1. ONE Teakettle designed by Dan Chung, Tony Ruth, Steve Abueva and Mike Serafin
ONE is a single vessel designed to both boil and serve, enabling a simpler, more direct user experience. The ONE Teakettle has an intuitive magnetic trivet that attaches to the base only when the kettle is hot, so the user can bring it directly to the table for serving.
Decorative graphic patterns are applied with thermochromic inks, which become visible as the water boils. This visual cue that the water is ready also creates an elegant aesthetic at the table.
