'suck: a ba starter'

26th June 2014

My favourite project from New Designers part one yesterday - and it seems the judges too as it won runner up Designer of the Year - was 'suck: a ba starter'.

The first part of a three part collaboration with a chef and designer Ellie Corp, the project is a series of tools designed for eating. For the first course her tools focus on sucking of a kind of noodle soup and as such she has designed objects that interact playfully with the rituals surrounding eating.

Working with soft and hard materials Ellie has used silver and stainless steel with natural sponges to help with the liquid retention and the over all experience of eating.

Part 2 and 3 are to follow as will be an actual dinner where visitors will be able to experience the utensils.
