Pass On The Chilli



Designer: Prabhat Mahapatra @ designdaku

Beware I say because I bet you have not seen anything like this ever. It was never designed before! It is a brand new product-concept.

Beware I say because it comes in a deadly combination – first the chilli, second the nourishing green chilli eating habit via the holder and thirdly this chilliholder is conspired by a design bandit (designdaku: daku means bandit in Hindi)!

Yes, if you are the one who can hear the crunch green chilli makes between the chilli lover’s teeth; if you know at least one person who loves eating chillies in your home (if you are an Indian then there must be a person in your house who loves his chilli, says so designdaku and I wholeheartedly agree!); if you are frying chillies with pakoris or having your ganthias (gujarati snack) with chillis and raw papaya then you know where to head and how to serve chillies.

Designdaku is a team of  very talented young Indian designers who believe in catalysing paradigm shifts to bring transformative solutions and products.

And let me give you a last warning – beware: while making inquiries about their designs I had a very funny and friendly encounter with these designdakus. So go on, pay them a visit here.

With A Pinch Of …

With a Pinch of er… Chilli!

Piccantino, the chilli scruncher chops chillies for you, spread and stores without direct contact with skin. Born of chilli 🙂 this design object is made of transparent rubber and steel. Gift it, hang it like good luck charm or ward off bad vibes (present in many a culture differently) or just spice it.

{This post is a special greeting for my rss and email subscribers who have joined me today at this new place. Wish you unlimited and uninterrupted enjoyment of all the fun and function of various design forms presented daily at my site!)
