Design by Eero Aarnio, 2013.
By Alessi.

This playful and functional electronic kitchen timer was presented at the Maison&Objet 2013 in Paris. Taking the form of the curious long-necked duck, this clever kitchen tool is squarely in line with one of Aarnio's most popular approaches to design. His works are short, visual tales that combine features both humorous and playful with precise and explicit functional meanings.

Recalling the way a traditional, mechanical timer is used, the AEA05 Duck Kitchen Timer is set by rotating the central dial: clockwise sets the minutes, counterclockwise for the seconds. The typical sound of the alarm has been replaced with a funny duck "quack". Available in multiple colors.

"I believe that above all, utilitarian products should be functional, pleasing to the eye, pleasing to touch, and if they happen to bring a smile to your face all the better." — Eero Aarnio
