Ponti Studio’s Kitchen Utensils For Ommo Are Both Fun And Functional

If you appreciate good kitchenware, you will appreciate what Hong Kong-based Italian designer Andrea Ponti has came up with. In a project for Ommo, a design-oriented brand, Ponti Studio introduces three lovely guys: Diga, Koma and Torus. Using curve lines and colors, the trio is as fun as it is functional. There’s no form follow function or vice versa; it is just form and function, and minimalist at the same time. The first of the three, Diga, is a duo tone melamine salad bowl that hides a nifty feature beneath: a disk located at the bottom of the bowl allows the it to lock in water for washing vegetables and with a twist, it can be opened to drain out the water. Closing the disk, the bowl can continue to be used as a salad bowl, which is what Diga is. Continue reading Ponti Studio’s Kitchen Utensils For Ommo Are Both Fun And Functional

Research Lab Develops Electric Fork That Adds Salty Tang To Salt-free Meals

It is well documented that over intake of salt is one of the main culprits of high blood pressure. According to Blood Pressure UK, “eating salt raises the amount of sodium in your bloodstream and wrecks the delicate balance, reducing the ability of your kidneys to remove the water.” Our body reacts by introducing more water to get rid of the excess salt, which for some people, may lead to a rise in blood pressure. While we know the downside of salt, we can’t do without them. The key here is moderation, but what if a person has reached the point that he or she should not be consuming salt at all? Well, it looks like help is here – thanks to a special fork known as “Electro Fork” developed by Rekimoto Lab at the University of Tokyo.

spork is a result of a spoon spliced with a fork, which we thought was a pretty cool invention but the Titanium Kung Foon elevates the spork to the next level by incorporating a nice pair of wooden chopsticks into it. the spork part of the Kung Foon needs little introduction: we all know it is good for biting into your food and the deep bowl form allows scooping of soups and cereals but it is the chopsticks part that adds to its functionality. the chopsticks slide into the foon handle, transforming the otherwise short utensil into a long handled utensil that is well suited for scooping, scraping or stirring in narrow pots.
