The Canadian designer Francis Cayouette has done it again. Normann Copenhagen introduces a series of unconventional kitchen knives that combines the finest qualities in one and the same design product.
A series of kitchen knives with an excellent handgrip that makes them feel like a natural extension of the arm, the Normann knives are an example of good, functional industrial design that focuses on user friendliness. Francis Cayouette explains: "I have focused a great deal on ergonomics in the design process - not only on the organic shape but also on making the knives feel like a natural extension of the arm. The knives are a tool whose ergonomic design ensures the user a good experience whenever they hold the knife. The industrial design gives the knives a distinctive look when they hang on the wall or lie on a kitchen work surface. The round shape of the handle and the thin sharp knife blade create a strong design contrast. This, in turn, gives the Normann knives an exciting different look that makes people want to pick them up and use them." The series of sharp, perfectly balanced knives sports a superb hand grip. The Normann knives are made of Japanese steel and are intended for the culinary enthusiast as well as professional kitchen use. This is industrial design at its best. This is Normann Copenhagen and Francis Cayouette.
