NYX IS A COLLABORATIVE DESIGN BETWEEN A TALENTED DESIGNER AND A 10 YEAR OLD CHILD
Collaborative design has limitless frontiers and has been at the source of this project. As kids we have wonderful dreams but as adults, we have learned to set limits and bounderies for the real world. The playful tableware collection developed under the futuristic brand of YORB DESIGN (www.yorbdesign.com) has been designed by young architect and product designer Alex Petunin with the helpful contribution of Elijah Robineau who is a 10 year old child with a passion for design and futuristic concepts.
Alex, started to think and dream like a kid which resulted in aesthetic and playful functions while Elijah shared the ideology of an ideal design and function from the eyes of a child. Alex ensured during the development process that the tableware remained functional while creating elegant wavy forms that would improve the eating experience.
The inspiration came from the games that are found in most colorful playgrounds, each producing an educational interaction for the children.
A unique feature was added which is the full custom design approach. Its user can choose its own pattern, color and shape, giving it a very special sense of belonging.
The children can now finally look forward to dining!
