Bulbo and Orion
Contest: Peeters and Pichal Design Challenge 2011.
Soothes the soul, when you know the egg-bulb is eatable. :)
Bulbo -3D printed egg holder-, helps you start the day with best ideas. Extra dried parsley available. :) The idea of Bulbo came from lamp fitting. Instead of fitting a bulb on it, it fits a boiled egg (and could only served perfectly boiled egg). It is made by Poly Amide plastic, with 3D printing process.
Bulbo model was completely done with Rhino, and rendered using V-Ray for Rhino.
If you’d like to have a copy of Bulbo, it is now available at Shapeways: http://www.shapeways.com/model/362786/.
Orion is an experimental design of egg holder with scan feature. It detects whether the egg is good or not. The shape was inspired by alien spaceship, and has a “stethoscope” as an examiner tool for the egg. :)
