DesignNobis Snail Collection Cooks Up More Amusement in the Kitchen

It's possible to manufacture a product that is both practical and playful and the DesignNobis Snail Collection exemplifies this. Hakan Gursu dreamed up this adorable set that includes a nutcracker, a cheese grater, a corkscrew and a peeler.

Every one of the objects takes a similar shape with a pair of alien-esque antennae eyes on top. The eccentric features make it easy to grip the shredder, and they enhance the usability of the three others in rather different ways.

The bottle opener's antennae actually move up and down to assist you in removing the cork from the neck of your drink. On the shell cracker, they can be squeezed together to apply pressure to the nuts. Finally, the DesignNobis Snail Collection's scraper uses the Y shape as the bridge for the interchangeable heads.
