Home > Winners > #23765


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
One Good Tern

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Mortar and Pestle with strainer

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the study of natural forms in this case sea birds.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The unique design of this mortar and pestle is intended to be a focal point on any kitchen work surface. It incorporates the use of coloured silicone to form safe grips on the stoneware components whilst bringing colour to an otherwise plain object making the product an eye catching feature of the kitchen when not in use. It adapts to fulfil its primary function of grinding ingredients but the lid reverses to fit securely over the mortar bowl transforming to a strainer allowing liquids such as lemon juice to be added when making pastes.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The visual impact of the piece is as important as the function. With the lid removed the body functions as a traditional mortar and pestle for the grinding of ingredients. The socket in the body that houses the pestle when not in use also accommodates the neck of the lid when reversed which can the function as a secure liquid strainer. At rest the piece is attractive and eye-catching so can be left on display.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design concept was started and completed in March 2011

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A slip cast glazed stoneware ceramic body allowing easy batch production. The body is fired to a high temperature to ensure robust qualities and impervious surfaces. A soft touch silicone sleeve is attached to the pestle and applied to the protruding head section of the lid to aid grip and add colour.

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The project arose after researching the factors influencing the purchase of products with customers at point of sale. The data collected showed a growing willingness to purchase products that had a good visual impact which users felt happy to leave out on work surfaces. The essential function and performance remained the priority for most people but a significant number wanted products to be multi-functional to reduce the number of items they needed to buy. Ergonomic tests helped define optimum sizes as well as shape and form.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenges in this project were firstly to design something with sufficient visual interest that could be made in materials with the robust performance needed for the practical application. Secondly the ergonomic challenge was to establish optimum sizes and to confirm that moving to an oval body would not compromise the grinding action. Lastly the material challenge to select a material suitable for casting a complex form that would withstand the impact and stresses of prolonged use.
