‘Short-Circuit’ is a project by designer Gaspard Tine-Beres, featuring upcycled kettles, toasters, and coffee makers.

Designer Gaspard Tiné-Berès makes new household appliances from discarded ones, creating minimalistic and recyclable devices. He notes that many cheap appliances are thrown away when their electrical components are easy to fix, so landfill sites are becoming great sources of these components. They can be salvaged for re-use and will no longer be such a major waste problem.

Tiné-Berès is investigating a business model based on the exploitation of these resources, with the aim of producing a range of electrical devices with a new aesthetic and an extended life. His ‘Short-Circuit‘ project features a kettle, toaster, and coffee maker that are simple and inexpensive to make.
