Cooking is more of an art than a science, and all that creative chaos tends to get a little messy. How might we provide organization and cleanliness to home cooks without confining them to a rigid system?




Organizational systems force users to adopt new behaviors which are hard to maintain.

Cooking is a nonlinear process that requires improvisation at times.

Users consider 'clean-up difficulty' as a primary factor when making choices in the kitchen.

A system that encourages creative cooking should support the emergent behaviors of the chef. We ought to make a set of tools used to build solutions rather than a single fixed solution itself.

Every kitchen is different, and every cook has their own needs and preferences. A good system should be malleable in scale and scope, allowing users to design their own environment.

Inspired by classic stoneware makers like Fiesta and Le Creuset, and the warm nostalgia for American-diner and mid-century 'retro' aesthetics, Preppy's modern look is rooted in centuries of proven design.


Preppy is more than just a pretty mug. The system is built on a 4"-grid of 1-liter cubes, which makes Preppy the perfect measuring companion. The large dish, a 2x3 piece, has the same volume as a standard casserole dish.

Preppy is all about teamwork. Each piece builds on those beneath it and supports the pieces that come next. As a family of products, these little squares combine to make spice organizers, coffee corners, serving sets, and so much more.

Imagine what you could make if you got a little Preppy.
