Japanese studio Nendo has created a series of multi-functional kitchenware lids, which are designed to imitate hand movements like pinching and pushing.
Designed in collaboration with air conditioning manufacturer Daikin, the Air Lids series is made up of five airtight lids aimed at kitchen use.
Each lid corresponds to a particular hand movement, which includes picking up, pressing, pinching, pulling and pushing.
The collection, which will be presented at Milan Design Week, is made from a material called fluoroelastomer, which derives from the raw material used in air conditioners. This gives the product heat and oil-resisting properties and does not lose its colour or shape over time.
