INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Nadia El-Hindi – Chef !

Diploma project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei, Benoît Chastenet de Gery

Immersion into the highly codified world of cutlery made me discover the delicate and threatening duality of knives. Guided by my observations of the forms and details relating to steel work, I chose to open up the boundaries of this field with the help of a craftsman. Thus, I created “Chef!”, a line of kitchen knives that combines the intelligence of craftsmanship with the precision of the industry. The steel blade, protected by a natural anti-corrosive treatment called “seasoning”, is attached to the handle thanks to assembly that is directly inspired by hammers.
