ALFIL (MORTAR AND PESTLE)
The mortar and pestle are objects inspired in the Colombian culture. They can be used to grind or crush spices, seeds or substances to be consumed. The product is designed to be durable due to its special resin and nonporous composition. This kitchen utensil has a nonstick surface and it also repels water.
The Colombian culture is a mixture of five regions, with more than ten different cultures. This object gathers features of our pre-Columbian culture, which with a Western influence, proposes a piece of modern design. Alfil is not only a kitchen implement but also a piece of Colombian design that evokes with its form and concept our country.
It is a stool developed by the designer David Del Valle and the master Oscar Agudelo, a project in development.
The furniture is made by a process of extrusion of recycled plastic and modeled by hand with different types of thicknesses for the formation of the piece. Each piece is a unique object that can be reproduced in limited editions.
