A compliant mono-material product.

During my previous studies in micro-engineering, my curiosity in the technical nature of production was sharpened, particularly towards the elastic properties of different materials. « Lari » stems from a research on compliant mechanisms which make use of that elas


ticity to provide motion, reducing the number of parts, thus simplifying production and facilitating recycling.

This kitchen scale, entirely of plastic, is composed of three parts. The ingredients are disposed on the tray which is linked to the base by two flexible parallel beams. This allows the tray to stay level. The second part is a flexible indicator actuated by the movement of the tray. An arrow slides on the side allowing calibration to zero.
