Cooking Concept for Hermes Award

Kokulu is a kitchenware set inspired by the Korean cuisine using stone
as the main material.

The set consists of four pieces: a stone bowl and plate accompanied by a
wooden coaster and spoon. The stone plate can also be used as a lid for the
bowl when turning over and placing on top of the bowl. The wooden coaster
is designed to hold both, the stone plate and the bowl.

Kokulu means “upside-down” or “turned over” in Korean describing the special
feature of this design concept using a few tools for a great variety of purposes.
The Korean stoneware can be heated very fast and cools down very slow.
The food stays hot for a long time and cooking on the table without any add-
itional heat source is possible.
