Dodo

 

Prototype /2012

-

Dodo is a small container for soy sauce or oil. The container is made in silicone so that you can squeeze out the liquid. The shape of the con­tainer gives it a clear direction of use and also exudes a strong personality.

This project came about for a independent exhibition in Tokyo called "Food Work". As the title indicates, the topic of the project is food: storage, preparation, presen­tation, and eating. These objects spring out of simple and ordinary, yet es­sential and vital, actions that tie people together across cultural differences. The objects are designed for everyday situations in Norway – they are Norwegian. How­ever, we have been inspired by Japanese culture – or rather, by our particular understand­ing of Japanese culture. In other words: we have at­tempted to make Norwegian objects that could also be relevant to Japanese living.
