Interview with L&m Studio Lucie Piedra & Meg Oliver at Tuesday 18th of April 2017

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
LL: To provide the ultimate in noodle enjoyment. A beautiful frame for the food, insulated outer walls so one does not burn their hands, a sipping edge so one can enjoy every last drop of broth.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
LL: We wanted to design a unique yet truly functional noodle bowl.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
LL: We would like to sell or lease the production rights.

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
LL: The concept came quickly. Realization a bit longer.

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
LL: Under our own motivation, but we'd had customers at craft shows ask us to design a noodle bowl.

FS: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
LL: Not yet.

FS: What made you design this particular type of work?
LL: We make functional ceramics. Feels like it is within our body of work.

FS: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
LL: No.

FS: Who is the target customer for his design?
LL: Anyone who would enjoy a bowl of ramen.

FS: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
LL: Several components se the Eclipse Noodle Bowl apart from the other. It has a double walled design, allowing the user to hand the bowl with ease after it has been filled with scalding broth. The rim is offset with a thick edge (think chopstick rest) and a thin edge for sipping the last of the broth. This rim provides a dynamic frame for the soup itself.

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
LL: The colorful offset rims of the Eclipse Nesting Bowl Set are reminiscent of the ring of light during an eclipse.

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
LL: We used our brains, some clay & the potter's wheel to design this project.

FS: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
LL: The nesting feature with all the rims in the same plane.

FS: Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
LL: No.

FS: What is the role of technology in this particular design?
LL: N/A

FS: Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
LL: We enjoyed bowls of ramen and took notes on the experience.

FS: What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
LL: It was difficult to get the bowls to nest as we wanted them to.

FS: How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
LL: We were looking into patent information, but decided that proof of ownership that a design competition such as this one would provide would work better for us. There is also many added benefits to winning an international design competition.

FS: What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
LL: Everything is a conversation. This is just part of a bigger one. Design projects involve some serious problem solving. Each time we figure one project out our base knowledge and ideas grow leading the way to the next project.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
