Details: Designed by Nicol Boyd and Tomas Rosen of Hong Kong based studio Office for Product Design, Kitchen by Thomas is an extensive collection of everyday kitchenware that expands beyond the traditional dinner table to include other domestic settings, functions and materials.

Designed for the Thomas brand of German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal, the products in the range balance respect for existing archetypes with the exploration of new ideas.

Say the designers, “While each item is designed to work on its own, they are unified into a coherent collection by common product expressions, such as shared profiles, modular footprints and the characteristic wooden batons.”

“Aside from formal simplicity, a key aspect of the design is concerned with materiality, and great care has been taken to unite functional requirements with tactile and emotional qualities. The result is a considered combination of porcelain, glass, beech wood, stainless steel and silicone.”

The collection consists of more than twenty pieces, and includes kitchen utensils, salt and pepper grinders, oil and vinegar cruets, bread and cheese boards, a butter dish, a Parmesan grater, a mortar and pestle, a juicer, a folding trivet and a self-watering herb pot.

The Kitchen by Thomas project is the result of a three-year exploration and is the first concerted effort to develop an original product range for the Thomas brand since Konstantin Grcic’s Coup tableware from 2003 and Stefan Diez’s subsequent work.
