Kettle by Estelle Sauvage
This kettle by Ecole Nationale supérieure d’Art et de Design de Saint-Etienne graduate Estelle Sauvage uses a light bulb to heat water for a cup of tea.

This kettle works with the heat of an incandescent light bulb 100W, which the sale is forbidden since September, 2009 (in France). and which see ending their production and their existence within homes.
So the revolutionary object finished its life sadly, demonized by the ecology.
This project  just tries to pay a kind of tribute, staging the bulb, and its death.
The kettle becomes out of order, its status of useful object crosses in a fraction of second, an object of memory, a “former” object.
It really works, it does not bring the water to the boil but to an ideal temperature for tea: approximately 85 / 90°C.
It was presented in particular to the Pompidou Center of Metz, on July 4th of this year, during the “market of design” for the event ” Imaginez maintenant “.
