Eggwave is an accessory for storing eggs in the fridge. It has been designed in collaboration with Tobias Schmidt of Neff in-house design, and is shipping with all new Neff fridges.
It consists of two undulating interlocking layers: one in white plastic with a surface structure, the other transparent. The latter can be clipped onto the base in three positions to allow for the storing of six, eight or ten eggs. The aim was to give an ordinary everyday product that costs only a few cents in production (and often gets thrown away) an almost sculptural quality whilst retaining and improving its functionality over its predecessor.
Eggwave demonstrates that a relatively modest product typology can become quite interesting through conscious product design. It embodies our digital design process and history of experimenting with CAD software, and our ability to bring this form language into am economically mass produced product.
