Status: reddot, gia award

Always searching daily life products for improvement and better usability, we found the classic design-topic "lemon squeezer" not yet perfectly solved. Particularly the combination of practical tool in the kitchen and aesthetical item on the dinig table seemed to be a promising challenge for the development of a completely new product.


 Quote from reddot yearbook 2011:

"The cool and elegant stainless steel of the lemon squeezer pleasantly nestles into the hand. Due to an innovative ergonomic approach, the lemon is almost completely squeezed out in the two shell-like bowls. The juice is served without seeds or dripping. The minimalist form language is aesthetically balanced and ensures easy cleaning of the practical utensil as well as effortless handling. Its characteristic lines provide a sophisticated accent in contemporary dining culture."

After successful market launch and reddot design award, manufacturerer Blomus asked us to develop a second product, similar to the lemon squeezer, also suitable for the usage both on the kitchen worktop as well as on the dining table. We designed "Navetta" - e cheese grinder with collecting vessel.
