Ding Steamer Set by Office for Product Design

Hong Kong designers Office for Product Design have designed a food steamer for homeware brand JIA.

Called Ding, the set consists of a ceramic cooking pot with a steaming basket made of cedar wood and terracotta.

Here’s some more information from Office for Product Design:

‘Ding’ Steamer Set for Jia

The Hong Kong based Office for Product Design have designed the latest addition to their ‘Ding’ Series for JIA, a steamer set which was recently launched at Maison et Objet in Paris.

About the Project

Steaming food is one of the healthiest ways of cooking and is becoming increasingly popular around the world. It is also a common method of cooking in Chinese cuisine. Building on this the Office for Product Design has reinterpreted the classic Chinese steamer and pot for Chinese focused homeware brand JIA giving it a modern twist.

The ‘Ding Steamer’ set consists of a cooking pot with an accompanying cedar wood steamer basket. This steamer set differs from most in that it has a terracotta base, a material ideally suited to steam cooking as it absorbs and retains excess moisture, thus stopping the food from becoming soggy. The pot itself is made from glazed fireproof ceramic which is highly resilient and can be placed directly on top of a heat source or used separately for oven cooking.

The steamer set complement the other pieces in the series, the cast iron ‘Ding Casserole’ and accompanying bone china ‘Ding Bowls’.

About the Designers

The Office for Product Design work on projects across a wide range of typologies, spanning furniture, lighting, home ware and electronic products. The Hong Kong based design studio was set up in 2007 by Nicol Boyd and Tomas Rosén who originally met while studying at the Royal College of Art in London.

Nicol Boyd was born in Glasgow, Scotland and studied at Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. After working for Alessi (Italy), IDEO (USA) and Nokia (UK) amongst others he established himself as a freelance designer working with worldwide clients. He later went on to set up the Office for Product Design.

Tomas Rosén from Stockholm originally studied philosophy and mechanical engineering before completing his industrial design studies at the Royal College of Art. He has worked in the automotive interior design field in his native Sweden and also as a freelance product designer in London. Before founding the Office for Product Design he was a senior designer at Nokia’s design studio in London.
