A Friendly Potato Peeler
Peeler is a user-friendly potato peeler with an organic mode of expression. The designer duo HolmbäckNordentoft has created a simple, everyday kitchen utensil with a unique design.
Peeler is a reinterpretation of the classic steel potato peeler. Soft, simple shapes have been used giving it a friendly look. Peeler is made of steel with a matt silicone covering which makes it pleasant to work with and easy to use as a utensil.
HolmbäckNordentoft say that: ”The inspiration for the potato peeler's shape is derived from the professional kitchen. We have created a cheerful, accommodating and softer looking design instead of the usual hard and cold expression found in the classic potato peeler.”
Sebastian Holmbäck and Ulrik Nordentoft joined forces in late 2008, after having spent ten years as independent design professionals, to become HolmbäckNordentoft. They both educated from the Danish Design School in 1999/2000.
“Our field of work span widely. From lighting, furniture and interiors to textiles and complex building components. For us, the primary focus when creating new products, is uniting all the complex aspects of product development, moving beyond the mere visual appearance of the final product. We represent a holistic approach where consideration for the environment, the consumer and economy matters equally.”
