The design office Murken Hansen was founded in 1999 in Berlin by Hauke Murken and Sven Hansen. They like: clarity, simplicity, intelligence, traditions, idea ping-pong, german functionalism, working on ideas for a long time, knowledge that is not hardened to certainty, people that make things happen.
“We think people should own less but better things and so we try to create products with an outstanding usability and top quality. Many of our products are long selling items because we avoid to follow trends. So our products are staying up to date for many years. This is our contribution to sustainability.”
Spoonless is a small series of smart containers that create a warm atmosphere in your kitchen. Simply remove the cork lid from the small spout and pour without using a spoon. Hauke Murken and Sven Hansen love simple and easy-to-use products. They work with abstractions and reduction while still aiming for a maximum of function, smartness and beauty. The Spoonless series is a great example of how that theory works in real life.
The idea came in the kitchen in their Berlin studio as one of them was adding tea to a tea egg using a spoon. They instantly got the feeling that this was one step too much and felt like putting the spoon away and simply pouring the tea directly. Spoonless was born.
