Tue is a cast iron trivet, the name is Norwegian for when grass accumulates and creates a bumpy landscape.

The trivet has an uneven surface made up by rounded shapes, but there are always three points of contact for either small or large pots and pans.

Tue is one of four items being presented by Petter Skogstad at Food Work, an exhibition by eight Norwegian designers on "objects of culinary experience", at Tokyo Design Tide 2012. The other three are Chop-Chop, a compact large bladed knife, Dodo, a small container for soy sauce or oil, and Silhouette, a modern take on the traditional Japanese deba bōchō.

Chop-Chop

Says Skogstad, "Chop-Chop is a compact but large-bladed knife for use on a small working surface. The knife appears as crafted from one solid material, and the soft-shaped handle flows into a strict non-traditional blade shape."

Dodo

"Dodo is a small container for soy sauce or oil. The container is made in silicone so that you can squeeze out the liquid. The shape of the container gives it a clear direction of use and also exudes a strong personality."

Silhouette

"Silhouette is a modern take on the traditional Japanese deba bōchō, which literally means 'pointed carving knife'. The handle is made of solid colored corian and gives this traditional shape a modern twist. The design is traditionally for filleting fish. Fish is a big part of both Norwegian and Japanese culture."
