AWAA's Cast Iron Cookware
There are few things nicer than cooking in cast iron (you can make everything from casseroles to cookies in such a skillet). At this year's Milan Furniture Fair, design team Angell Wyller Aarseth presented a selection of cast-iron kitchen tools worthy of giving Le Creuset a run for its money.
The new collection is titled Handle Me and is the result of the collaboration between Norwegian designers Christoffer Angell, Øyvind Wyller, and Simen Aarseth. "Today we put our faith into technological devices which are designed to serve single, increasingly narrow purposes," they write, describing cast iron cookware in the same prose as a type of "immortal" product with its wide range of functions and potential uses.
Fresh out of school—the trio graduated with master's degrees in design from Oslo National Academy of Arts in 2010—Angell, Wyller, and Aarseth exhibited their wares at Salone Satellite, where young designers display their works in hopes of finding manufacturers. Watch our Salone Satellite 2011 to see the work of other young designers and be sure to check them out at the 23rd annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York May 14-17.
