Product news: the lids of these pans by New York designer Karim Rashid have large, brightly coloured hooks for handles.
The lid handles fold over so they can be grasped easily and latch onto a rail system mounted on the kitchen wall.
The handles of the black aluminium pans have holes in and sit under the lids when stored away, allowing them to hang together from the same rail.
Here's some more information from TVS:
Hook by Karim Rashid
“The kitchen is the busiest room in any house and contemporary architecture is increasingly making it a feature point, a reception area in the home. This is why the cookware range needs to and can be integrated as a part of the design progress, going on to become the true focus of the room as well as representing the heart and soul of the person who uses it every day.”
He has travelled the highly imaginative universe of “the pan that isn’t there” on a mission for TVS. Karim Rashid, legendary design star with ambitions to change the world (one of the most prolific minds of our time, with over 2000 industrialised designs for interiors, fashions, furnishings, lighting, art and music) that go straight to the heart of our emotions.
And moving on from the simple axiom above, in which today’s new humanism sets the home at the centre of our personal universe – and makes the kitchen the pulsing heart of the home – the result is a curious, irresistible Captain Hook.
Yes, Hook. That is the name of the brilliant new invention by TVS, which has transformed high-gauge aluminium into a complete range of exclusive cookware, with a rich communication potential.
A jaw-dropping effect, created by hanging the pans from the wall using the patented hanging rail and hooks plus eccentric handles in a mix of colours to contrast with the body of the pans. A range that is young at heart, built to be at the centre of any dj – sorry, cooking - set.
Essential, young looking and handy. With its magnetic feel, Hook connects to our lifestyle, bringing with it a large dose of good humour. Space problems are solved and really, all it is missing is a “share” button. TVS fans, modern Peter Pans flying over their lives with the gift of ubiquity, mp3 player in their ears and a wooden spoon in place of a sword, will be thanking Karim as they go.
