Balance is an intuitive kitchen scale by Nadine Fumiko Schaub. The simple design helps the user bake precisely by the gram, balancing up to 1kg of ingredients with porcelain and lead granulate weights. Interaction with the design encourages the user to see the object as an heirloom rather than a disposable tool. Additionally, the natural materials—brass, local marble, porcelain, and wood—make Balance a valuable asset to one’s cooking arsenal and design collection.
