Mesh knife series
Soft contours and adorned grips add style to kitchen essentials in Simon Legald's design Mesh. Mesh is an aesthetic series of kitchen knives with a delicate lattice pattern, which appears as a natural part of the knife. The refined embossing embraces the handle like a subtle skin and provides a secure grip on the knife.
Behind the Mesh series’ elegant appearance lies a carefully considered design of the knife as a user-friendly tool. The handle's capsule shape sits comfortably in your hand, and the weight balance between the grip and blade is finely tuned. The gentle curvature of the shaft feels comfortable against your palm, even when applying pressure to the knife.
Designed by 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."
