The ME Dinner Set was nominated for the most important design award in Colombia, Lápiz de Acero 2016.
This product was also exhibited at Frame’s Kitchenlab at the IMM in Cologne From January 14-22, 2017.
“Me” is a set of food containers which invite the user to share a special moment with other people. We want to share wonderful moments, create unforgettable memories and experience each other’s way of cooking. Our concept is based on the mixture and fusion of both cultures and centered on cultural codes and local materials. These basic ingredients make the product recognizable to a Colombian and a Dutchman.
Emma and MOAK spent considerable time on getting to know each other. They made presentations about their own country, city and personal life and shared those with each other. The next step was to begin to select and highlight key points that they could implement in their design. They realized that they have similarities between them within the activities they enjoy with their family and friends, the design aesthetics and how they visualized the entire project.
