Known for his experimental, distinctive designs defined by bright colours and graphic shapes, Sowden has now collaborated with HAY to create a beautiful range of colourful kettles and toasters. Available in four finishes, each defined by one main colour, or complemented with a contrasting palette for the base and lid, the design draws attention and intrigue to an everyday object that once sat quietly in the corner. A distinctive piece that connects retro styles of the past to artistic designs of the present, inject a splash of colourful personality into your kitchen with the Sowden Kettle. Part of the HAY Sowden collection.
