German industrial design graduate Ulrike Jurklies has created six pared-down and functional objects for the home – which started life as stainless steel off-cuts and can be assembled by consumers from an initial flat-pack form. Called Mo Man Tai, after the Cantonese phrase ‘no problem’, the range comprises key rack (far left), serviette ring, egg cup, candle rack, towel rail and CD holder (left). Beginning as two-dimensional items to simplify packaging and mailing, the products ‘gain character and functionality’ through the addition of ‘pre-determined’ creases, says Jurklies.
