Picnic & Wave
This project was to design a set of indoor & outdoor dining products for the kitchen & accessory line of Hay(hay.dk),
with emphasis on the industrial manufacturing process.
A picnic has become a lifestyle and created a demand for products that can be easily carried around and used in public.
By introducing a set of dining accessories that can be used in both contemporary indoor and outdoor settings,
Hay can elevate the dining experience and make the moment of eating not only joyful and shareable but also handy.

Picnic basket set
Dimension 12.5" x 9.5" x 10.5"
Material Powder coated aluminum, maple
The 'Picnic' basket set is an attempt of modern
re-interpretation of a traditional picnic basket.
As a set of kitchen accessories, it highlights the versatility and multi-use for both indoor and outdoor purposes, which speaks to the brand philosophy.
The 'Picnic' is a set consisting of a wooden basket and a metal tray, made by bent plywood and stamped aluminum.
The basket and the metal tray become storage at home, and can easily become outdoor carriers with the help of the wooden rod which locks them together.
Dimension 8.5" x 8.5" x 0.8"
Material Maple, mineral oil finish
Celebrating the natural patterns of each wood pieces that are revealed by the CNC machining process, 'Wave' attempts to achieve playfulness and function through its form.
As a set of two identical wooden pieces, it can be used both indoors and outdoors as a serving tray or as a chopping board.
The rhythmic ripples of the tray collect the crumbs from the food and also serve as cradles to prevent small snacks or fruits from rolling around.
