I designed this for Dansk about a year and half ago. It's finally on the market. I was asked to design a new trivet- rather than a mundane, static, patterned design, I created this- a trivet that fold out three sizes for whatever sized dish you have. I came up with a pretty good mechanism that, unfortunately, isn't so well executed on the production version- so its a bit sloppy...but thats the life of a designer, right?
After an 18yr hiatus, I'm back racing again- fitter, faster, older. In my spare time, I am a product designer for a local maker of sharp things. My real job is apparently to juggle responsibilities and still try to self-actualize...Good luck, right?
