Hearth was our competition contribution to the Aluminium Design Award 2011.
Hearth is a cookware series. The design is influenced by the shape of the rose-hip. The series features a three-legged stand in black anodized aluminum plate, cut and bent in one piece.
The accompanying candle fixture holds a tea light that makes it possible to keep food warm. The stand has been supplemented with refractory serving bowls in stoneware.
The open shape of the stand, the candle fixture and the serving bowls allow good stack ability, an important property both during transport and for storage in a shop or in a kitchen.
The characteristic tripod is reminiscent of ancient times, in which people gathered around the seat of fire to eat and socialize. In the same manner we want to inspire people to see the meal as an opportunity for gathering.
