Milan – Italian cookware manufacturer KnIndustrie has launched its debut collections at the MACEF 2011 international home show in Milan.
The pieces, produced in collaboration with Italian architect Rodolfo Dordoni, are designed to be used as cookware and tableware.
The Abct collection is made from enamel-coated aluminium with clip-on handles, enabling vessels to be used on direct heat. Wooden disks can be used as lids for storage or as a base for protecting surfaces while serving.
The Foodwear range of pans, made from stainless steel with a polished interior, is designed to need less space for storage. Items in the line can be used as serving bowls or trays, and the glass lids can be changed into a presentation stand.
As LS:N Global explores in our Leanomics trend report, the push towards leanness and cultural decluttering is creating a new aesthetic, away from the glossy and heavily marketed, in favour of the clean cut and essential.
