Rollingpin-less in Slovenia

Issue 07

The best products are often solutions to personal frustrations. Metod Burgar, a Slovenian designer, got the idea for his Wood’n’Roll rolling pin after he resorted to using a wine bottle as a stand-in to roll out dough.

The rolling pin, a continuously joined piece with no visible screws or glued parts, is made from locally sourced wood and Kerrock, a composite material similar to marble but non-porous, which is also made in Slovenia. He added pair of colourful rotating handles that connect to the body through a curved surface, to make rolling easier and more ergonomic. His first project with Wood’n’Roll? Potica, a traditional festive Slovenian pastry.

The Wood’n’Roll joins a growing list of objects produced by young Slovenian designers who are showing an interest in expanding on Slovenia’s history of craft. This re-energized and contemporary approach to woodworking, glass blowing and ceramics has led to an onslaught of products helping to elevate Slovenian design around the world.

Objects like the Ondu pinhole camera by Elvis Halilović, the Eclipse wall lamp by Tilen Sepič, the wFoil 18 Albatross hydrofoil two-seater by Wilsonic Design, Leis kitchenware by Gigodesign, the Taste dining table by Luka Pirnat and other products by young Slovenian designers are just a few examples of design emerging from Slovenia at the moment.
