The chopping board
for all ages.

Demì is a kitchen tool designed for all users who have the correct functionality of one hand or one arm.

Demì was designed as a safety system for cutting food, this chopping board exploits latent behaviour that extends the public to various categories, from the youngest to the oldest.

Two overlapping surfaces that slide in one direction allow you to use body strength to trap food that can then be cut with just one arm. It is a system that doesn’t preclude use for people without disabilities, as it’s also a reliable and precise way to cut food safely.

This project was developed for Snips following the principles of Design for All.

Demì: the system

How to lock the food for cutting

The project is developed entirely along the food locking system. The idea, which comes from the observation of machinery from industrial production chains, has enabled a new solution for cutting food. Even more important was to understand that the strength of the body, in particular the abdomen (at waist height), was essential to replace the inability to use one of the two upper limbs.
