    Thanks to infographic about citrus and their tools, which I realized before to design my tools, I had a panoramic of their competitors. In this way I identified the targets for the development of a better design and in line with the customer needs, always looking for tools that improve their home chef's experience. So I established it’s important to create a clean and essential design, aesthetically pleasing and functional, that aims to an easier and more comfortable use of tools. #APPEAL #EASY TO USE #ERGONOMICS #FUNCTIONAL #LOW MATERIAL Read Less

GRATER
how to use
GRATER
feature
Grater is ergonomically designed to adjust to hands of different size, so to be used directly on a plate.

It’s easy to handle by pads thanks to two protusions on the sides.

It’s stable because a part of the structure lays on the area of the hand between thumb and index.

It takes up a little space and has a limited surface.

The body is made of tough polypropylene, so that a general stiffness of the object is granted to contrast the pressure practiced during its use.
 
SQUEEZER
how to use
SQUEEZER
feature
Squeezer is a one-piece product that has the function of a citrus squeezer and it can be used with glasses and cups of common use.

This is possible thanks to its ‘boat’ shape that adapts to different glasses’ size in a range between 6 and 9 of diameter, which is the size of most glasses.

The drainage holes starts from below going up in the inside part of the squeezer, in this way while the citrus pulp goes to the bottom of the structure, the liquid finds an outside barrier and an inside hole that ends directly into the glass.

Starting from the classical setting of vertical cuts, I made the squeezing area more funny
interchanging empty and full areas to form a sort of little mountains that increase the appeal keeping its function.

Squeezing citrus creates pression on the glass that has to be resistant to avoid risk of breakage.

The minimum thickness of glasses required is 2 mm and I can assess that most of home and sold glasses satisfy the minimum thickness required.
