The Gekko Iron by Erik Pavon is the Lamborghini of the ironing world.
Erik Pavon’s ultimate goal was to create a safer iron with Gekko. The lower part of the iron changes color to alert you of different temperature levels.
Also, rather than reaching for a steam button, the handle pivots downward to release the steam, making the Gekko ergonomically friendly.
Implications - Product designers continually aim to improve existing products with enhanced aesthetics or functionality. This iron uses influences from the automotive world to alert the user of temperature changes. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by similarly drawing inspiration from seemingly unrelated industries for their designs.
