Good Grips Measuring Spoon Set, ca. 1990

This is a Measuring spoon set. It was design team member: Davin Stowell, Stephen Wahl, Jürgen Laub, Tucker Viemeister, Michael Calahan, Stephen Allendorf, Stephen Russak and Daniel Formosa and manufactured by OXO International and firm: Smart Design, Inc.. It is dated ca. 1990 and we acquired it in 1992. Its medium is molded abs plastic. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Manufacturer OXO International sought to create more comfortable, functional kitchen tools by providing larger, improved grips that make the devices usable for a greater part of the population. Color coding each measuring spoon makes its capacity easier to identify, a design solution that proves as useful as the re-designed handles.

This object was donated by OXO International. It is credited Gift of OXO.
