The Italian designer-dreamers at Thin-gk developed two minimal med-tech objects for the kitchen. Featuring wooden geometrical shapes and rows of LED lights, they interact with the user from a simple human touch. While GKilo is both a clock and a scale, ClogG is a modern version of a clock that brings a med-tech touch to the daily act of cooking.
Thin-gk is a team of engineers, developers, designers, inventors, and dreamers from Italy who are “tired of dumb objects with a single function.” Their elegant designs add a modern minimalistic touch to everyday cooking and serve more than just one use.
While GKilo looks like a standard wooden plank, you’ll be surprised to know that it’s a clock and kitchen scale on in one. Lay it on one side and the LEDs will display the time, turn it over, and you can then weigh the ingredients that will go onto your plate. With a simple touch of the hand the scale and clock can be reset, and in standby mode it works fine as a simple paperweight.
ClogG, in turn, is a modern version of a clock shaped like an angled cut cylinder shape, and it also doubles as a cooking timer.
Thin-gk’s elegant designs have interactive touch-activated technology and intuitive features that turn cooking into a satisfying experience in the Era of Internet of Things.
