OPEN UP ABOUT STORAGE

Taking the challenge of creating a piece of transformative design that hinged on my own life experience, I crafted the Sesame as a form of storage primed for smaller living environments. Part dishware protection, part mobile storage cabinet, part dishwasher, the Sesame can do it all. Just open slowly and see.

The initial concept for the Sesame came from my time in dormitories, in my early years of college. Space was tight in a single room with two people living in it, and there was little space for anything non-essential, including dishes. Piles of plates that needed to be cleaned were common, but even more-so were clean plates, unsure of where to exist in a place with almost no unused surfaces. A contained with a small footprint that could work as a book-end was exactly what I needed- something that could contain a single person's plate and bowl and cup needs, that would collapse when not in use. I got to work and the Sesame was born.

Designed to work without power, the Sesame would have a spring-loaded design, with a single button to pop-open the outer shell and reveal the planes, cups, and bowls inside ready to use and made of easy-to-wash plastic.

An all-in-one kitchen set for a dorm, the design was styled to fit in at mass market retail, such as Target, and a way for moms to send their kids off to college without wondering if they had anything to eat their microwaved hot pockets off of. Style doesn't have to be high-end, after all.
