Nowadays, kitchen gadgets come in fancy shmancy varieties but not all consider the practicalities of everyday usage. Why not throw physics into the mix and see what you get. That’s what Italian design firm did with their line of Applied Physics kitchen stuff which considers the basic elements of science in their product designs. The duo of Federica Castagno and Sara Petrucci of Acquacalda have created the One for All-All for One, the Archimede’s Scale, the Vasco, and Mix in Glass collection of kitchen gadgets in hopes to bridge the gap between scientific principles and practical systems.
Consider buoyancy. The Archimede’s Scale is a graduated food bowl that doubles as a scale when immersed in water, the depth of the immersion indicates the weigh of the content. (yay time to throw away the measuring cup!)
Consider atmospheric pressure. The Mix in Glass is a glass dispenser which helps in the preparation of cocktail drinks by controlling precise dosage of their ingredients.
Consider Pascal’s Principle. The One for All, All for One is a wine dispenser which can simultaneously pour equal amounts of liquid into four separate glasses.
Consider communication vessels. The Vasco is a container with a water reservoir, which passes water to the accompanying vase when hydration is necessary.
Fun yet practical products that make life that much easier! Have you considered applying physics principles to other objects?
