About

Nautile

Nautile is an electric and combustion kettle that is easy to use, efficient and has a reduced environmental impact. The shapes, materials, structure and internal mechanisms as well as the manufacturing process of this kettle have been inspired by nature in order to minimize its energy consumption, responsible for 80% of its environmental impact. Judge for yourself: - the nautilus moves along the seabed by precisely controlling the volume of water that fills the various cavities of its mineral shell. Built on this principle, Nautile integrates four internal tanks. They each correspond to the capacity of a cup and are spherical in shape, optimal to limit heat loss. They allow the user to fill only what he needs and therefore, to summon only the necessary energy. - termites regulate the temperature of their habitat by designing a complex architecture. Based on this principle, Nautile integrates a similar structure. A central chimney and numerous channels run through the printed object in three dimensions. They allow the user to heat a volume of water quickly and efficiently, with a minimum of energy. - the toucan has a spout with a light and robust structure that allows it to regulate its body temperature and the polar bear protects itself from the cold thanks to a fur made of hollow and insulating hairs. Inspired by these principles, Nautile provides an insulating layer that encompasses the volumes of water to be heated. It is composed of a honeycomb structure and numerous cavities in the ceramic material, which is itself insulating. They allow the user to keep the water hot for as long as possible so as not to heat the same volume later.

The company

Big Bang Project

Big Bang Project is a Parisian studio, created by industrial designer and biodesigner Guillian Graves. Its core business is the design of tomorrow's products and services, research and education. To meet the challenges offered by its international partners, Big Bang Project has created a unique methodology located at the border between design, science and technology for the benefit of society. This unusual approach allows Big Bang Project to design innovative and relevant responses to the major issues of tomorrow in fields such as energy, health, housing, mobility, the environment, space and humanitarian aid. Through the Big Bang Project, Guillian Graves also gives conferences and supervises workshops for industrial and scientific audiences. In addition, he is a teacher-researcher at ENSCI-Les Ateliers, EESAB, the Michel Serres centre and the UBO Open Factory. He is also administrator of the biohackerspace La Paillasse and co-leads the iGEM team at the Institut Pasteur.
