  • "I'm with Mr. Wheeler. We see this in softgoods/apparel design where trendy designers create "no-waste" patterns, which is another way of saying, you have to wear your waste around everyday. I'm 100% for efficient material usage, but you'd find more innovation around that goal in ikea than you would here. The contract with the consumer is new to me, but feels a bit like: "buy my thing, then promise me you won't throw it away when you get tired of the odd look or the extra weight. Because I am a conscientious designer, not like those others.""

  • "I don't get it. And judging from the fact that this would be very easy to make and test, I think we should all be skeptical that it's just a rendering. I can already "angle my mixing bowls"... Is the base meant to hold the bowl instead of using my free hand? If that's the case, high powered magnets will either 1, not be strong enough to keep the bowl stable or 2, be flat out dangerous around other steel objects. Furthermore, unless the magnetic base is either very heavy or fixed to the counter (forcing me to only mix in one place in my tiny kitchen) the user will STILL have to hold the bowl with their free hand, now they'll just have a clunky magnetic base to move around too.Pretty much any stainless mixing bowls can still fit on/in other pots for double boiling. And they have a handy feature where you can set them down on any flat surface. Posting work like this that is comprised of only renderings is the industrial design blog equivalent of retweeting unverified controversial "news". "
