Colorful Kitchen Accessories by the Designer Behind Your Favorite Brand
If you’ve ever lusted after many of Hay’s simple but colorful accessories — from the ultra-covetable Strike matches to the duotone Analog clock — you have Shane Schneck to thank for that. The Swedish-American designer, along with his wife Clara von Zweigbergk, has for years created products and headed up the chic art direction for the Danish brand from his studio in Stockholm. Now, Schneck is bringing his finely tuned eye to another housewares brand: Ommo, a colorful kitchen accessories collection that’s debuting in the U.S. this week. Schneck is the designer behind the brand, which was developed by a Hong Kong–based company, and the multifunctional pieces were inspired by both Eastern and Western eating rituals. Made of high quality plastics like bakelite and food-safe silicone, many of the OMMO pieces feature a hidden twist — an accordion trivet that folds for extra storage, or a serving bowl that can be broken into three separate dishes. And because it’s Schneck, you can expect pitch-perfect colors and the cutest styled photos, which we’re featuring here today.
