Award winning kitchen powers
November 26, 2018
News! Sustainable kitchen utensils with delightful Scandinavian design from Flying Tiger Copenhagen.
Do you need new creative powers for the kitchen drawer? Flying Tiger Copenhagen introduces CRAFT, a new sustainable kitchen series, which has already won two of the most prestigious international design awards before launching in the stores: European Design Award and IDA Design Awards. “CRAFT is produced in the softest FSC certified beech wood, hand-polished and oiled so that the wood retains its natural look. The set symbolises Scandinavian simplicity, functional design and good craftsmanship. During the design process, each of the 14 kitchen utensils is created with a great love of nature and my intense passion for organic shapes,” says Lovorika Banovic, Chief Designer at Flying Tiger Copenhagen.
Each piece has its function
Whether you’re frying, whipping, tasting, stirring, brushing, scooping or simply working around with the practical (and really pretty...) small brush, CRAFT fits neatly in your hand thanks to the asymmetrical handle - curved on one side and flat on the other. All pieces have a hole in the top of the handle so they can simply hang on the wall when you’re done using them. Such a beautiful set of such delightful craftsmanship deserves to come out of the kitchen drawer. The light FSC certified wood treated with soybean oil, together with stainless steel and durable silicone, provides an environmentally friendly, durable solution that successfully protects your pots and pans.
CRAFT arrives in stores in February and each piece in the set costs 15 kroner / 2 euros.
