Basic Series by StokkeAustad and Frost Produkt

Norwegian designers StokkeAustad and Frost Produkt have collaborated to design a range of kitchen utensils.

Calling the project Basic Series, the designers intended to make a range of kitchen utensils which are strong, sturdy and easy to use.

The new products include a large wooden handled serving spoon and potato masher, stacking candle holders, a folding trivet and a chopping board with built-in compartments to put vegetables in once chopped.

The range also includes a glass water carafe, wine decanter and glasses.

The range was exhibited at 100% Norway during the London Design Festival in September.

Here's some text from the designers:


The series we have developed are basic kitchen utensils concerned with preparing and serving food. It started with a desire to develop a series of sturdy, durable and basic tools for the kitchen, emphasizing closeness to food and produce, and ease of use.

So the masher and brush has big ergonomic handles, the cork on the carafes are also large an easy to use, the trivet folds up and the chopping board has different compartments for cut produce.

We have not designed an entire range of utensils, but rather focused on some different products.

Today the series consist of a chopping board, a potato/mushroom brush, a masher, serving spoon/spatula, a trivet, stackable candleholders, water carafe, wine decanter and wine and old fashioned glasses.

We showed the prototypes at 100% Norway during the London design festival a few weeks ago.
