Spot-Not Decanter Dryer is the only decanter dryer that is able to dry the inside and outside of any shape of decanter. It solves the age-old problem of preventing the formation of spots on the insides of wine decanters and carafes. The decanter dryer consists of two main parts: a drying cloth that is inserted into the decanter and a drying mitt for the outside of the decanter. Both parts are made of highly absorbent microfiber material and of a series of magnets affixed. As you move the drying mitt, the drying cloth inside also moves, drying the inside of the decanter.
The Concrete Cities project presents a series of contemporary design souvenirs for the modern traveler and the city lover, in the form of concrete coasters. The city center's map relief appears on the surface of a set of four or six concrete coasters (fragments), forming a puzzle, which can also be used as a pot holder, a wall piece or press-papier. This contemporary souvenir diverges from its traditional ancestors, and becomes a design everyday-use object, decorative yet functional, allowing the user to recall memories of his favorite cities, while enjoying a cup of coffee.

The Branche teapot has a smooth, contemporary design accentuating the soothing, calming aspects of tea drinking. A sleek, lifeless tree and branches were the visual inspirations for this piece as they embody the serene aspects of the tea drinking experience. Branche was created to emphasize the primitive behavior of using something without a handle. The most challenging aspect of this project was to design a tea pot which met the desired parameters of being contemporary, sleek, safe and able to be used with one hand, right or left.
The MiPan is designed to absorb the fat and liquid by-products of the cooking process and hold them within a cavity preventing unpleasant spitting and the associated mess. This efficient removal of excess fat and liquid creates leaner food cooked at lower temperatures. The reduction in cooking temperature means a reduction in carcinogens produced by pyrolysis. Finally the MiPan promotes the Maillard reaction as the removal of water facilitates the recombination of sugars and amino acids to form new flavour compounds.
