Home > Winners > #36723


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Íris

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Butter dish

INSPIRATION:
Inspired on a butter dish that existed on a long gone restaurant with the same name and had a traditional and unforgettable atmosphere.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Iris will initiate an elegant meal. It's a piece that presents butter in a surprising and sophisticated way. Start your meal differently...

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Put a piece of butter (aprox. 20 grams) on the top of the cylinder, then press gently with the cap (that has the flower cut) against the cylinder and make the butter flower appear. It's ready for serving.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in march 2014 and finished in july same year, in Famalicao, Portugal. Was exhibited in POPs 2014, Serralves Museum, Oporto, Portugal. It won the first prize.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Made in stainless steel 316, water and laser-cutted. Laser welded. Assembled and polished by hand.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions: 125 mm diameter X 35 mm height. Package: 150 mm square X 40 mm height.

TAGS:
butter dish, butter, cream cheese, iris

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The original piece was a simple cylinder with holes on top through witch the butter oozed. I loved the way that escapes from the plastic container that often appears on restaurant tables. Once the restaurant closed, I've tried to search for that butter dish but it was nowhere to be found.. So, I had to make mine... First in silver, believe it or not... but the piece was to fragile to be made anywhere else. From there, it was trial and error until the final design, here presented.

CHALLENGE:
Designing an object is always difficult. You have to study hard all about the materials and techniques involved in your idea, and never be certain that it will work or even sell... You have to control very well the cost of the piece and understand not only about it's design, but it's marketing, image, packaging, etc... And then... Expose your creation (and a piece of you) to the world...
