Sorry for the lack of posts this week peeps. It’s not like there’s not been lots of new tech to report, but I’ve been preoccupied with press events and the filming of some exciting Girl About Tech videos that will be launching on House To Home next month.
But to tantalise your tech taste buds, I thought I’d show you more of De’Longhi’s 2013 range. You can always rely on these innovative Italians to reinvent the wheel – well kettle. We’ve had the multi-dimensional Brillante, last year’s sexy Vintage Icona, and now we have the new Scultura range, which is inspired by ‘Futurism’ – an early 20th-century Italian artistic movement which celebrated speed, technology and industry.
I think the rippled silhouettes will really grow on me – even if the toaster looks a lot like an old Fiat 500. The Scultura breakfast range is available in four metallic shades – Bronze Beige, Steel Grey, Carbon Black and Zinc White, and consists of:
The Scultura cordless kettle, £99, with a 360’ swivel base, a 3kW rapid boil, cord storage and a removable, washable limescale filter.
The retro Scultura toaster, also £99, with removable crumb tray, an ‘extra lift’ position for small slices, and a browning control for each pair of two slots.
And the eagle-eyed among you will have also spotted the Scultura espresso machine. It’s due to be launched later in the year at a price to be confirmed.
Scultura is launching exclusively at John Lewis from April.
