Bold. Courageous. Eco-sustainable. Innovative.
The assumption that the idea of the product knIndustrie is immediate and obvious: to simplify the user experience of cooking utensils, cooking and presentation of food at the table. A dream that took effect from direct experience, observation and dialogue with renowned chefs, professionals and ordinary people who have told us their way of living in the kitchen, their modus operandi, the way of moving in space, confiding limitations and disadvantages of modern instruments.
The collection consists of a series of food containers that, depending to the depth and diameter, take in the kitchen the role of pans, casseroles or low casseroles. Releasing the handles and transforming the wooden lids in potholders and supports, these same vessels become plates, cups or bowls for serving dishes. All this with great functionality and elegance, in full compliance with eco-friendly. The body of the container is made in 3 mm aluminum with exterior coating in porcelain enamel and with interior white nanotech ceramic coating, the best nonstick now on the market: compact, smooth and nonporous, durable and is ideal for healthy cooking in the oven and on the hob, which requires no added fat. The shapes of containers are simple and harmonic for a minimalist service that fits conveniently in any decor.
GLASSPOT : THE NEW YORK TIMES
“The humble stockpot becomes the star of the stove in the hands of the Italian designer Massimo Castagna, who renders it handsomely in tempered glass to withstand high heat. You can watch your fusilli bubble and boil, or broccoli dance and turn bright green, or a chicken become soup. The 8-quart pot’s stainless-steel handles stay fairly cool. It’s elegant enough to use as a punch bowl or a bucket for a few bottles of wine, or to fill with bright gourds for a Thanksgiving centerpiece. There is a silicone lid that’s not a thing of beauty, with a steel knob that does not stay cool, so you might do better with one of your own instead: Museum of Modern Art Design Store.”
Handle: Essential feature of knIndustrie, in fact, is at first “convertibility” of each item proposed, mainly using a comfortable handle-clamp that attaches to any container thereby giving it a swirl of really fun and useful, personalities. Just a “clack” and the bowl turns into a large casserole, ideal for a spaghetti meal with friends. Another “clack” and removing the handle you transform the pan in a beautiful fruit holder to store, perhaps, in his glittering immaculate stainless steel, on the table or on a cupboard, to give a touch of incomparable design.
Cake Stand / Cover: The covers Foodwear are in two versions: bronze glass and polished steel, are equipped with a large knob with a particular shape that allows you to use them upside down, parallel to the slab, so as to transform them in a cake stand to bring to the table quiche, cakes, biscuits and everything the creativity of the chef suggests. Foodwear makes this innovative and versatile feature possible thanks to the materials used and their particular processing technique, as well as the easy locking and releasing system for the handles. The top quality 18/10 stainless steel, skillfully worked, is the protagonist: looks shiny inside and bronze colored outside, achieved through a special process called "wonder plus" that makes the surface very material. The bottom is in multiply steel / aluminum / steel and the pots can be used on all types of hobs: gas, ceramicglass, thermal and electromagnetic induction.
The creativity of Massimo Castagna is expressed in the new pattern of stainless steel cutlery Dem with a vintage finishing.A further invitation, according to the KnIndustrie philosophy, which encouraged to break with the tradition for a more free and informal approach.
