Plast'asciutta / strainer


A strainer passes the 97% of it’s lifetime in a cupboard, it is only used for the 3% of its lifetime. The design of traditional strainers do not incorporate this aspect efficiently. As a result they cause problems when trying to allocate space in the cupboard.

Traditional strainers are not very stablebecause of their little base. Stacking it like a pot or pan is therefore rather difficult.

I have come up with the function “strainer” . This strainer solves the problem by having a foldable and easy to mount shape. It can also be used in a different way.
