New York-based design studio MyDesign Group has recently completed a metal collection for Nambé. The main design in the collection is the Scoop Server, a really fun “chip & dip” bowl where the dip bowl seems to hover effortlessly over the larger serving bowl.
Wei Young, head of MyDesign, explains the inspiration for this piece:
The inspiration for the Scoop Chip and Dip came from the sweeping, fluid motion one performs when scooping an actual chip into dip. The captured movement lead way to the curvaceous lines and spherical silhouettes of the piece. The Scoop was designed to immediately convey it’s function while being inviting and alluring to the user. The two bowls seamlessly blended together creating the distinctive profile. Simple yet complex in form, the shape of this object would be highly difficult to produced in one solid piece using typical molding processes and techniques. The Scoop lends itself perfectly to Nambé’s signature hand crafted alloy and intelligent manufacturing processes. I wanted to created an object that reflects the energy of our modern era, and be classic in form to last into generations to come. Aesthetically original in form and function, the Scoop is for entertaining as much as it is for conversation.
