Due Kettle has been designed according to Design for All principles and is suitable for general usage while it includes elderly and disabled users. With its contemporary and simplistic lines, it fits to modern kitchens. The design offers flexibility and ease of use with its twin handles used together or split. Unlike conventional kettles that hardens wrists while carrying and pouring, two handed usage enables a better use. Besides, instead of spring-mechanism lids that require finger dexterity, press-open lid is used with a decline on surface to use tactile senses as well.
Kettle, one of the most used kitchen appliances, creates difficulty for elderly or weak-wrist users while holding and pouring with its full weight. Due Kettle solves this problem by split handles that can be turned around to enable dual hand use. It is a user friendly design with a push-open lid.
Metal and plastics are intended to be used, suitable materials can be preferred such as stainless steel, inox, PP or ABS. Product is shaped using metal processing techniques such as spinning or pressing and for plastic parts injection molding can be used.

Apparently keeping track of your food in the fridge is not that easy, as we’ve seen many designers have come up with unique and innovative solutions to remind you about expiration date of your food. Fridge Magnet is one of those innovative designs that features QR code scanning function to keep you up-to-date with everything you have in the fridge.
The QR code scanner on the magnet can be used to register any information about the food from the name, place of origin, production date, expiration date, and proper temperature for best preservation. As time goes by, this device will change its color to give you a strong visual reminder about the food’s level of freshness. You’ll notice the green or red color, green means your food is still fresh and red means your food has deteriorated, you need to throw it away. These fridge magnets also double as children’s toy where they can learn about food as well as notify their parents what kinds of food they would like to have for dinner.

The oxygen concentrator Aero is designed primarily for mobile use. Aero Mobile Oxygen helps people with lung defects to supply their body with oxygen. Aero has the advantage that no logistical effort for refilling is necessary. The concentrator has a comfortable handle, a flat design and can easily be integrated into everyday life.
In many cases, patients live 24 hours a day with an oxygen machine but for many people, a big problem is the exposure to the general public. For any outsider it is clear that there must be a very sick person because of the loud, big, heavy equipment. The Aero Mobile Oxygen comes with a practical backpack with which you can control the oxygen concentrator through an integrated remote control. The backpack doesn’t look like a medical device to achieve that the patient feels comfortable in public. To personalize Aero every patient has the possibility to change the cover in different styles.
