Design student Helen Butler has come up with a new product to help the elderly and people with arthritis to pour from a kettle without lifting it up.
Of her invention, which she has named the 360 Degree Kettle, Butler says: “This kettle allows all users to easily and more safely pour hot liquids. The base, which rotates through 360 degrees, allows the kettle to pour without the need to pick it up, whilst the transparent side gives a visual indication of how much water is left inside.”
The prototype of the kettle is on display later this week, along with some of Butler’s other work, at the New Designers exhibition in London from July 10 to 13. The exhibition showcases some of the freshest new talent in the design world. Visit the website at newdesigners.com.
Helen Butler, who is 22, graduates from De Montfort University Leicester later this month with a BSc (Hons) in industrial design.
