Klipy Kitchen Tools

I love entertaining, whether on holidays, birthdays or simply on the weekend, there’s nothing like passing time with family and friends. However, as a city dweller it’s sometimes a bit challenging as space is quite compact, which is why I prefer items that are designed with functionality and a small footprint in mind.

Today, I’m going to share two wonderful kitchen tools that will make my life (and yours) a lot easier. One is a cake divider, the other, a compact dish drainer – designed by industrial designer Guy Klipshtein from Klipy Studio. Continue reading


Multi Basket

The Multi Basket is an exciting modern take on the traditional basket. Designed by Copenhagen-based Norm Architects, the Multi Basket is a hybrid between a tray and a basket. When the handle is down it functions as a tray and when the handle is up you have a portable basket. Regardless of what you choose to put in it, this multi-functional piece beautifully displays its content and gives it a contemporary touch. Continue reading

Double Dish: Two in One

With some innovative kitchen engineering, the Double Dish is actually a bowl made for separating your spent shells and pits from the olives and nuts you might be enjoying.

Wooden Skandinavian Breakfast Plates: Refined Rural


This set of six Skandi inspired breakfast plates in natural wood echo northern hemisphere honesty and style at relaxed dinners or for quick lunches. The pieces are simply round and flat, with a grove to catch crumbs and drips, finished in a beveled edge. The look is quite aptly described by Rowen and Wren’s various collection titles – ‘Refined Rural’ or ‘Timeless Living’, as these are the sort of plates that are simply made, yet will always look sophisticated.

Herriott Grace Homewares: Precious littles


The ever-changing but select collection of handmade homewares, from cake flags to hand turned chopping boards, is one set that we cannot forget. If the heart meltingly tactile and beautiful products themselves weren’t enough, the father daughter story behind it is bound to charm. When his daughter moved 3400km away from home across the country, Lance Herriot began sending parcels as tokens of his love. Often included were hand carved spoons made from the favorites from his lifetime wood collection. All it took was Nikole to propose sharing the lovely pieces in a store, and the Herriot Grace brand was born. Continue reading


Simply Carafe: Stylishly store your liquids

Especially in the case of kitchen objects which are meant to functionally carry liquids. Can you imagine this Stelton’s Simply Carafe, magically, while in fact just simply, changing colors according to the refreshment it’s ready to serve in beautiful glasses of thirsty people like you and me?
