Ritu, Mediterranean Walnut opener. Exhibited in Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, 2019

Objective

The objective of this design project is to add value to the moment we are gathered around a table to eat. This intention is expressed by two objects that are used to eat walnuts.

Result

One is a nutcracker, that has a functional and simple system and an elegant form that adds to this special moment. The other object is a tray that holds the walnuts, the shells and the nutcracker, it has an organic shape that enhances the act of cracking and eating heart healthy walnuts.

2019, Functional prototype
