Launched in 2015 the new form ONO by Thomas represents one of the most sustainable product concepts and designs of the new year. The design has now been named winner of the 2017 Green Good Design Award. The award identifies and emphasizes the world´s most important examples of ecological and sustainable design for our world environments and is being announced by the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. One hundred products, programs and people from 20 nations have been selected to receive this special design prize.
ONO’s well-thought-out details make it an impressive piece both as part of a complete service and combined with other highly unique individual items. The striking grooved relief is not just there to provide a visual or sensory wow factor; it also has a functional use. Thanks to their grooved structure, the saucers can be used for any sized cup and also serve as practical covers for the different-sized bowls or simply as plates for antipasti. On the other hand, the food presenter can be used as a cake stand and – when turned upside down – serves as a stylish fruit basket. The 29 cm glass bowl also functions as a cover when used as a cake stand.
The 34 cm oval plate is an eye-catching piece from both sides that offers added value. One side is flat and the other side features a raised edge for salads or sauces, making them very easy to serve using a fork or spoon. This ensures people enjoy their food right down to the last bite – for all generations and life situations, whether you use it as a barbecue or gourmet plate. The porcelain mug-to-go is an equally fancy yet environmentally friendly accessory. With its ring and cover made from silicone and plastic, it ensures you don’t burn yourself and keeps your coffee or tea pleasantly hot for a long time when you’re on the go.
A natural combination of materials with elements of wood, silicone, glass and wire mesh accentuates the modern look and turns the design into a versatile all-rounder that is just as suited to the requirements of everyday use as it is to large family parties with their array of different delicacies. The sophisticated concept means that ONO functions with a reduced selection of items, thus creating more space in the cupboard. The compact material has particularly high chip resistance and is both dishwasher-safe and suitable for microwave use.
