The electric kettle Motus utilizes a form analogy to visualize its main function, water boiling. This is achieved by thermostatic bimetal springs. Located in the lid, the springs expand due to the rising steam of boiling water to gently push the lid’s round cover upwards. As the water cools down, the cover sinks back into the lid. Pressing the lid down, the kettle opens. Thanks to its funnel-shaped spout, Motus can easily be filled under the tap. All electronics, including the heating coil, are designed for easy exchangeability to ensure a long-lasting and sustainable life cycle.
