About this artwork
Ineke Hans’s Garlic Crusher is part of Dutch design company Royal VKB’s Thoughts for Food series, an innovative line of kitchenware designed for improved performance and utility in order to better meet the demands of a modern, fast-paced lifestyle. This utensil features a flat side to crush garlic cloves and a cylindrical element to spread out the cloves by rolling over them. Unlike traditional crushers, Hans’s design is easy to clean. It also functions as stainless steel soap and removes the smell of garlic from the hands. A similarly clever and practical piece from Royal VKB’s line, Jorre van Ast’s plastic Jar Tops (also exhibited in this case), screws easily onto readily available glass jars and reclaims them to serve a specific purpose, transforming them into functional kitchenware.
