designer avichai tadmor has created the ‘italian job’ cooking accessories, ‘farfalloni’ and ‘penneli’  for monkey business that were conceived when making homemade pasta. the farfalle-shaped silicone object can be used for gripping hot pot handles, making it easy to carry the dish off the element. it inherently resembles a set of clips and the process saw tadmor develop a large-scaled version that functions as a bag clip. following this, the item was made even bigger and the material changed to rubber – in order for it to turn into a pot grip.

 

the ‘penneli’ is a silicone garlic peeler that can be used to help compliment pasta dishes. it enables you to peel garlic cloves quickly and easily by rolling them into the over-sized penne tube. the packaging for products was influenced by traditional italian pasta graphic design.
