A minimal emphasis on the character of this quite common kitchen appliance by award winning industrial designer Gražina Bočkutė. Blender Nutopia is a blender concept exclusively created for a Nopicnic client during Gražina's internship. She was tasked with designing a product to fit into small Japanese and Scandinavia interiors, be easy to use and leaving only minimalist aesthetics. The outcome is a blender with a minimal interface, allowing the user to manage everything with only touch - rotating to control and tapping to confirm. Gražina mainly focuses on small-scale projects such as this one as her design process mostly starts from quick and dirty prototypes.
Created by the most revered six star Belgian Michelin Star chefs, in conjunction with Chocolaterie Verleye and multidisciplinary designer Davy Dooms ,this indulgent range of chocolates is combined in one elegant box using only black and white distinctive minimalist branding and packaging - an approach that oozes purity, cleanliness and tradition. The chefs gathered together their vast knowledge and culinary flavor sensations and created six unique chocolates covered by a patterned rice paper, to make the discovering even more special. Giving or receiving this box of chocolates is always a special moment to treasure.

An excellent reinterpretation by Saif Faisal that only reveals it's intended purpose when it is occupied with things on it and can be anything to ones imagination. It's a versatile minimal piece on a desk, dining table or a kitchen counter with shapes catering to different uses like accommodating eggs, lemons or some other fruits. A container to all, Loup uses simplicity and versatility to put any object on display, from cuisine to memorabilia. Simplicity takes advantage of the 3D printing process to create a durable porcelain form only viable with this technology. Faisal is part of a generation of Indian designers designing opposite the pervading sensibilities.

Designed by award-winning designer Josh Owen, the Torq Nutcracker ensures that, force and elegance are no longer mutually exclusive. Drawing inspiration from the functionality of industrial tools and mechanisms, this object adds control and fun to the formidable task of cracking nuts. Torq Nutcracker pushes the limits of 3D printing technology, by reducing material thicknesses to a bare minimum, achieving a surprising lightness while remaining remarkably strong. Josh Owen is also an author, professor, president of his eponymous design studio, and Chair of the Industrial Design program at RIT.
