With an interest in sustainable energy solutions, Berlin-based designer Christoph Thetard shares his latest graduate thesis project for the kitchen titled R2B2. Presenting it's mechanical beauty and operation with a large crank-able fly-wheel, R2B2 transforms muscle power into usable energy, whipping food and biceps into shape.
Able to drive a series of hand and base supported tools for about 1 minute at a time, the machine has multiple gearing for variable speeds and utilizies familiar flex shaft engineering to bring power to just about any kitchen task at hand. Christoph determined the most in-demand cooking prep processes we deal with every day and fully realized a food mill, coffee grinder, and hand blender to demonstrate the power and practicality of choosing human power to cut, whip, blend, and grind.
