Fusion has been designed in collaboration with Urban Splash, and the regeneration of the Park Hill flats complex in Sheffield. This product has been designed to reflect Park Hill and Sheffield as a City. Gaining inspiration for the form from Chemistry equipment, the intention was for the user to feel they were undergoing an experiment.
With the ability to brew both coffee and tea, this product was designed for the everyday lifestyle and for the social events put on by the tenants to create a sense of community through the common interest of food and drink. Fusion creates a new and exciting experience in terms of brewing and infusing teas and coffees.
