Papageno is the bird-catcher playing the comical part in the opera. It became the name of the half automatic kettle we designed for Fissler. Alva produced the stainless steel kettle on which the thermoset handle is mounted. A metal part, melted inside the lid, provides a whistle when the water is boiling. Lifting the kettle and pressing the knob on top, opens this lid.
Smidesign developed the product and prototyped the grasping mechanics as well as the whistle sound.
