If you’re a designer, it’s likely you interact with objects on a daily basis and think, “there’s a much better way to design this [insert object here],” or more simply, “this thing is trash!” So attain a bit of catharsis today by watching seasoned industrial designer and Smart Design co-founder Dan Formosa rate and test out kitchen gadgets for Epicurious:
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
While Formosa only employs a couple methods for testing a product’s effectiveness, it still reveals to the non-designer the many minutiae involved with getting a kitchen tool right they may have never considered.
