Alberto Vasquez – Removable Handles
Design by Alberto Vasquez. “We make lots of complex operations in the kithcen which sequences must be very precisely coordinated in a fairly dangerous environment – hot oven, sizzling frying pan etc. In such a complicated ambience like the kitchen we need simple tools and usability. Hence when I designed the removable handles my aim was that the instruments must be as simple as possible but not simpler.
The black clip fixes the handle when you close it. It’s made of the same material but different color – it can be produced by multicomponent injection molding. The clip style of the handles provides plenty of space for water and detergent to spray, splatter and clean (in the sink or the, ahem, washer).
The handles are made of a special kind of refractory silicone material that can handle 300-400 Celsius, so you could probably even put it in the oven by accident without incident.
There is a metal part inside the silicone to brace the handle.”
