There's an interesting story behind the K3 kettle, now available from TwentyTwentyOne

Originally designed in 1938, the sleek lines and magnalium and sycamore materias of the kettle shows the influence of European Modernism on the design. However the outbreak of war meant the factory producing the kettles was turned over to ammunition production and it wasn't until 1946 when the kettle was finally manufactured. It reached wider public consciousness, under the more familiar name of Picquot ware as part of the V&A's 1950s Britain Can Make It exhibition. 

Still looking every bit as stylish today, the kettle costs £149.
