The storage of food is a market that designers have tackled a lot in the past, but none of the solutions have looked or worked quite like this one. Slock’s designer, Minki Kim, viewed the area from a different viewpoint and identified that common food storage systems focused primarily on the functionality and overlooked the usability, making the containers difficult to carry around, especially multiple at a time.
Slock’s design allows three containers to be carried using the curved, comfortable handle. When the user arrives at the table, the rather clever, sliding structure allows the three containers to lie horizontally on the table with ease, avoiding accidents and unwanted spillages.
The combination of curved glass, unusual round form and pared-back color options allow for Slock to seamlessly integrate into the kitchen’s interior décor.
