Growing up in a three-child household, I drew inspiration from the importance that play had throughout the eating process, from cooking to cleanup.

The Tic-Tac-Trivet immediately stood out as simple, yet unexpected, and in character with the MoMA tradition of playful simplicity.

 

Right: The mockups presented to the MoMA team were first laser-cut and etched from wood, then cast in silicone and color-coated for a "live" material effect.

Below: These models were accompanied by renderings of potential colorways for the final deliverable.

Selected from a pool of over a hundred original concepts, Tic-Tac-Trivet

was released in January 2018 as part of the SVAxMoMA partnership.

It can be purchased in two contemporary colorways through MoMA-affiliated vendors.
