Oiless (Plate) by Hongfeng Ni
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Bakeware, Tableware, Drinkware and Cookware Design Award Winner
I started with user observation and found people have three ways in nature to decrease additional oil or oily sauce of food. Scraping food on edge of bowl, press food on bottom of bowl, using rice to absorb oil. I applied these function in personal plate to redesign, so that users need not learn how to use this new product, just use it unconsciously.
My plate design aims to aid people to reduce additional oil and oily sauce unconsciously. Chinese food always contains oil in the sauce. I applied three existing oil-remove habits in personal plate by changing the plane bottom into a spiral one, so that people can reduce oil by scraping, pressing and absorbing oily sauce. And this plate dimension is 184*184*13 mm with fillets, which is easy to store and clean.
