Frying kitchen appliance

This appliance has an archetypal shape to make its function more straightforward.

Designed at:

The Brief

Contains same technical part as the classic Actifry®.
● Use only one color
● One single moulded piece for the base
● No transparent lid
● No handle

The Stakes

I wanted to make this appliance understandable even if one cannot see what it does without the transparent lid. I designed the shape inspired by the archetype of a cooking pot with its lid. The challenge was to respect the single moulded basepart and I took upon myself to add smaller handles.

The Result

Tefal team selected my proposition. It really stood out and meant something. Furthermore, it was the one sticking the most to the brief as the cheapest and easiest to produce. It has been developped in a second version.
