Description

The collapsible kitchen funnel is a simple, functional and practical object, which only takes up space when it is in use. The material is flexible enough to be folded again and again, hard enough to keep its shape and durable enough to resist cold as well as hot temperatures.

Boje met Normann Copenhagen, and in a co-operation with engineers all parties developed this special soft material - flexible enough to fold together, hard enough to keep its shape and durable enough to take cold and heat as well as the repetition of folding the funnel. The end product speaks for itself and apart from being space-saving and easy to clean the funnel is aesthetic.

Boje Estermann explains:
I was in my kitchen one day in need of a funnel. I deliberately had not bought one because funnels take up a lot of space due to the non-flexible form. Nevertheless the funnel is an important part of the daily household and the core problem for me was lack of kitchen space combined with an inflexible form. I started to think of the possible ways to design a flexible funnel when I suddenly thought of my old reflex camera, which had a soft sunscreen, which folded out like an accordion when the sun got too strong. The unique quality of the sunscreen was clearly that it only took up space when in use - this way the seed to the collapsible funnel was sown.

Note: The funnel can be used for foods as well as for petrol. The funnel is dishwasher proof and can be placed in the dishwasher folded as well as unfolded. If the folder unfolds itself just put it in press overnight, - the rubber material will then go back to its original form and will be fully collapsible again.
