Barcelona-based Compeixalaigua Design Studio has created a modern and flexible steam roaster in which you can steam and serve food. These silicone bowls which were created by silicone manufacturer Lekue, are foldable and can be turned into heat-proof steaming dishes by inserting a tab on one side of the bowl into a slot on the opposite side.
The Steam Roaster designed by COMPEIXALAIGUA DESIGNSTUDIO based in Barcelona, for the household silicone brand Lekue. The Steam Roaster is a multifunctional bowl; it takes the advantage of silicone’s flexibility to change its shape.
On a closed position it combines the best from steam cooking plus a crunchy finishing produced by the air circulation from its opened ends. When opened it is merely a bowl, but you can prepare, weigh and mix all the ingredients and even serve straight from the oven, just one piece for the whole process from kitchen to table.
This product exemplifies most of the studio’s approach in front of the design process. It is focused on the user as the most important piece of a product “How does a user modify or affect the object?” and material honesty. Material honesty in terms of a design process that respects what is it going to be made of, how and why.
Lekue is a silicone manufacturer so the object should respect that, it has to be made in a manner that it could only be made in silicone. It should have the benefits of a silicone piece, and its production process. That’s where the final function and shape comes from. This product was conceived to allow anyone simply to use it, there’s nothing to learn apart from recipes, its shape is so obvious that doesn’t require any explanation.
How was the user involved into the design process of this product? In a manner that the final object respects the user. Easy to use? It can be opened or closed just with a single touch. No need to fiddling with a really hot piece right out of the oven! Easy to wash? Its shape is so simple that you can’t find a single shape to retain food rests. Easy to store? It can be stacked or stored rolled, and as a silicone piece, it can be squeezed as much as needed.
