So clever – check out Re-Do Studio's beautiful, recycled kitchen appliances!

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Difficult to know what to do when your toaster or cheap white kettle breaks, do you just put it…in the bin? The worst part is, these household appliances have usually broken in such a way that they could be very easily fixed, we just don’t know how. Enter RCA graduate Gaspard Tiné-Berès and super craftsman Tristan Kopp, who together are on a mission to clear landfill sites of small appliances by transforming old glass parts and cork into new, very beautifully designed toasters and kettles.

“My coffee-maker, kettles and toaster, are made out of re-used components, and factory seconds glassware such as wine bottle and chemistry beakers, in order to take advantage of its ubiquity, and standardised dimensions. The main structure is made out of natural cork for its waterproof, anti-bacterial and insulation properties. Moreover, cork can be recomposed in order to utilise all the off-cuts. This design required no mould and can be frequently upgraded, repaired or changed as required.”
