Hold-On potholders by RIG-TIG

October 2017
Hold-On potholders by RIG-TIG have been awarded the Red Dot Award 2017 for Product Design. Inspired by origami methods, Hold-On is a modern silicone potholder and table trivet all in one, made in heat-safe silicone. As designer Søren Refsgaard says, “I always found silicone potholders practical because they can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher. The pattern improves the grip and also adds a pleasing visual effect.”
The popular HOLD-ON all-in-one silicone potholder and table trivet now comes in new on-trend colours: misty rose, dusty green and light grey. Avoid burnt fingers—the shape of the potholder ensures a good grip on pots and pans, and provides even more heat insulation than conventional cloth potholders and oven mitts. HOLD-ON potholders can also be used as smart table trivets under hot dishes. And they are easy to clean; wash them in a washing up bowl or dishwasher for a hygienically clean result.
Søren Refsgaard (1977) graduated from from ”Design Seminariet in Højer, Denmark” in 2003 – later the same year, he established his own design studio in Copenhagen. His work, which is deeply influenced by the Danish design tradition, is mainly focused on lighting, furniture and home accessories. Søren Refsgaard’s mode of expression is simple and often characterised by a humorous twist.

DAMN°64 Food presents products that are creating waves in the kitchen. Says Productivity editor Patrizia Coggiola about the Sweet Modernist trend:

"Seducing the eye with the vital force of accurate contours, shaping the body of the object like a precious grand centrepiece to attract the attention and polarise our movements... Whether it is the eclectic morphism recalling the forms of exotic locations or the shivering glow of the polished metallic surfaces, the wittiness of the design is enrapturing."
