  • FoodWork: 8 Norwe­gian designers

    Dodo is a small container for soy sauce or oil. The container is made in silicone so that you can squeeze out the liquid. The shape of the con­tainer gives it a clear direction of use and also exudes a strong personality.

    Ori grinders and salt cellar. These grinders and cellar were results from experi­menting with origami in our studio. The shapes of folds and crystals inspired the idea of milling salt and pepper. The conflict between the top and the bottom parts is a physical representation of the internal grinding process. The grind­ers and cellar are made from maple wood and Corian.

    Basic wood tools for food preparation including spatula, ladle, skimmer and rice pad­dle (shamoji). They are shaped in a way that makes them a natural extension of the hand.

    These objects spring out of simple and ordinary, yet es­sential and vital, actions that tie people together across cultural differences. The objects are designed for everyday situations in Norway — they are Norwegian. How­ever, we have been inspired by Japanese culture — or rather, by our particular understand­ing of Japanese culture. In other words: we have at­tempted to make Norwegian objects that could also be relevant to Japanese living. Our goal is to draw inspiration and knowledge from how our work is experienced in Tokyo.
