Maple Set by The Federal
Canada-based studio The Federal decided to look at kitchen knives from a new perspective to produce this beautiful set.
“We focused on the essence of a knife, that key component that people think about when thinking about a knife. We isolated the blade as that defining component and designed around that as the highlight of the product. By reducing the size and visual weight of the blade it becomes this sliver of polish and refinement. From there we looked at other kitchen tools and felt that the warmth of a wood made for a great material. The stark contrast of materials works well to highlight the smaller blade and blend the body in to its surroundings.”Industrial Design Product Design Posted on September 29, 2014
