Final projects

Series of Knives

Derková Alžběta

Design, Bachelor Project


The project deals with the design of a series of three kitchen knives, which are based on Japanese knives and at the same time have a distinctive appearance. In my project, I wanted to preserve something from the long tradition of Japanese cutlery and at the same time reflect the needs and experiences of European users. The result is a synthesis of Japanese and European approaches. The design focuses on ergonomics, the choice of materials and the appropriate aesthetic design. Emphasis is also placed on the interconnection of individual knives in series and the creation of a unified expression.
