Case Study: Housewares
Looking to reinvigorate their signature Hotpan product and excite their customer base, Swiss housewares company Kuhn Rikon asked Material ConneXion to research and identify material alternatives that met performance characteristics and possessed a new visual appeal.
- Uncommon Aesthetic
- Manufacturing Support
The concrete selected not only aligned with current design trends, but because it was originally developed for indoor/outdoor furniture, its resistance to heat, liquids, and household chemicals made it ideal for housewares
The Material Solution
Kuhn Rikon’s resulting “Elements of Style” collection was met with much excitement:
We are very excited about the product, [and] about the whole project. We are already expanding the concrete line with several additional products. Customers love it, and the feedback and responses at the trade shows were huge.
