Do you enjoy doing the dishes? Sure, it can be kind of meditative, but to most of us it’s just plain boring. When creating FLUNDRA dish drainer, we challenged two of our most experienced designers to not only make this part of everyday life a little easier, but also more fun. But is that even possible?
Designers Knut Hagberg and Marianne Hagberg (yes, they’re brother and sister) have worked with us since the 70’s.
“We try to make the everyday better for as many people as possible with every single product we design. At a reasonable price. That’s what motivates us”, says Knut.
FLUNDRA is a good example of that kind of design. It has more to offer than the most obvious.
That FLUNDRA had to work in a small home with limited space was a given. That’s why the cutlery stand is a part of the dish drainer itself. By using flexible polypropylene plastic, it became possible to hang nine glasses on the side of the drainer, dry 18 plates at the same time – and still have room for that extra pan or bowl. The choice of material also keeps costs low.
“We wanted to add something that could trigger the imagination and bring some joy to the product. That’s why we made the drain holes look like soap bubbles – it makes FLUNDRA more playful and a little less like your average dish drainer, explains Marianne.
Does FLUNDRA make doing the dishes more fun, then? Maybe not. But, we created a dish drainer that can dry a lot of dishes on a small area. And at a price that fits anyone who rather spend money on other things than dish drainers.
