Balancerie

The Balancerie, designed by Xiaowei Yu and Italian designer Marianna Milione, is a kitchen scale of composite polymer and stone.

Oil Roll-On

Oaza’s roll-on dispenser spreads oil in a thin, even coat, nipping both double-dipping and drenched corners in the bud.

Replacing the standard cruet and ...
