Exclusive Range of Kitchen Utensils
The Danish designer Simon Legald has created a range of kitchen utensils where excellent quality and exclusive natural materials go hand in hand. The Craft Salt and Pepper Mills, mortar with pestle and rolling pin are all made for frequent everyday use.
The entire range is made of solid oak and robust marble. The utensils have a classic look and a weight that makes them comfortable to hold. The simple, flared shapes that cut across the entire range, also discretely distinguish the Craft family traits.
Simon Legald says: "The mills, mortar with pestle and rolling pin are all traditional kitchen utensils used for active jobs in the kitchen. Therefore the utensils must naturally be durable. Additionally, the work is done by hand, so for me it is essential that the quality can not only be seen but also felt when holding the products. The marble and oak served this purpose perfectly."
Design: Simon Legald
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
