Simplicity itself: introducing Normann Copenhagen’s Pin Peeler

Simplicity and functionality are the main characteristics of the latest addition to Normann Copenhagen’s range of kitchen utensils. The Pin Peeler is penlike in shape and has been stripped of any unnecessary details. Pin has a silicone covering to ensure a good grip, making the peeler fit comfortably in the hand.

According to the designer Jan Christian Delfs, the pleasure derived from preparing food starts with having great kitchen utensils. A good kitchen utensil must be fun to work with and capable of mastering its function to perfection. With Pin, the designer has created a new interpretation of the classic vegetable peeler with a consistently minimalistic shape. The goal has been to create adesign that enhances the pleasure of preparing food, both practically and visually.

The matt material and rounded edges soften the rigid feel and give the peeler an inviting appearance. Pin has a sharp, self-adjusting blade, which rotates when in use. This also ensures that the peeler is comfortable and easy to work with, regardless whether you are left- or right-handed.

Pin is available in classic black and light grey as well as in four fresh colours: yellow, red, purple and turquoise. The vivid colours make it easy to find Pin amongst the other jumble in the kitchen drawer.


Jan Christian Delfs studied Industrial Design at Muthesius Academy in Kiel, Germany. He founded his own studio in 2006 to design products for international companies. His work ranges from household equipment to consumer electronics as well as from furniture to interior design for which he has been honoured with several prestigious design awards.
