"This kettle was groundbreaking; it was one of the first production pieces that used an existing mold/die in its form rather than manufacturing one from scratch. The designer recycled a headlight from a pre-war car, which was flipped over to create a usable kettle. Great thinking. Designers in the age of sustainability would be wise to look backwards and record how design activity developed during the depression and into WW2. -Todd Falkowsky" (via The CANADIAN DESIGN RESOURCE » K-42 Electric Kettle)
