An Aussie-Danish partnership unites the best in food and
Shoalhaven-born industrial designer Drew Rosskelly consults for the likes of Breville and the Danish Technological Institute, but you'll also find him sketching, cutting and hand-finishing woodwork for his own company, Wahl&Ross, which is conveniently located around the corner from one of its main clients - Noma restaurant - in Copenhagen.
How do you describe what you do?
Wahl&Ross works with innovation in food. It's become one of our specialties. This year we created shelving for the Noma Tokyo pop-up, and a new range of cooking and dining tools is in development for Noma's next menu, which we hope to be a part of as well.
How did your relationship with Noma come about?
Every year at the MAD Symposium, Noma releases new dishes. Two years ago they had a berry dish they wanted to bring out, and they didn't want to use a normal metal spoon because it was too cold. We went about designing a wooden spoon for that particular dish and, about 20 prototypes later, developed the perfect spoon. We've made quite a few hundred spoons for them now because people keep stealing them. It's Noma's most stolen item, which is a big compliment, I guess.
