Funnel Friends by Roger Arquer
Published on December 2, 2013
Funnel friends is a multi usable and practical cross over set between funnels and containers that can be perfectly used for transferring liquids, cereals and grain. The flowing shape of each of the Funnel Friends is cleverly designed to make the complete set fit together perfectly. This allows the Funnel Friends to be easily stacked and stored so taking little space. It was winner of Red Dot Award 2011.

The three pilars of his design proccess are: function, beauty and emotion.
Arquer is interested in how quotidian objects have the capacity to give us emotion as we use them, “good designs should tickle your soul”.
