Axis Kettle: Eco Icon

The axis kettle designed by industrial designers Paul Taylor and Gerry Mussett was a pioneering project in eco product design in Victoria. The central cordless electrical connection developed for this project is now standard on most kettles worldwide. Chris Ryan, John Gertsakis and the team at the Centre for Design at RMIT established a number of very successful projects with industry in the early nineties.
