convergence, circle, cycle of water
"There is no beginning, and no end. Water cycles." I gave form to the cycle of water as circle by converging the spout and handle of kettle. Watched from the front, it is circular, but watched from the side, we can see that it is distorted. I suggest the concept of not literal convergence, but design convergence as distorted form. I selected the material of kettle whose heat is not conducted up to the handle. To use environment-friendly one, I avoided rubber.
Design Challenges
By excluding rubber generating environmental hormone, I approach it with the concept of environment-friendly design. Finally, I suggest not the literal concept of convergence, but a new form of kettle with the concept of design convergence.
