Between 1 and 3 July, Design Parade 6, 6th international festival of design, is held at the beautiful modernist villa Noailles in Hyeres, South France. This extravagant collection of the electric kettles by Jean-Baptiste Fastrez is on show there too.

Called Variations upon an electric kettle, this original design project by young French designer, is the great exercise of the everyday poetic. He enriched ordinary industrial household product by total new unorthodox look. The result is the strong collection of kettles which are made out of standard industrial components (heating elements, handles...) and unique vessels in miscellaneous shapes and materials: turned ceramic, ABS (plastic).
