i came across a nice design feature from a company and design studio both mentioned a few times before on this blog. 'hang around' and 'toss around' is designed by kibisi (whose bikes and headphones i have previously posted about) for muuto (whose lamp, storage basket and tealight holder i have previously posted about).
these kitchen utensils are designed to rest on the side of a pan or bowl. i'm not sure how versatile they would be realistically, as different pans and bowls have different radii and thicknesses, but it is a nice idea anyway. the below image, too, presents a bit of a problem, because were you to rest these on a hot pan the wood would surely eventually start to burn.
still, they are very nice forms indeed!
