Asiab

Asiab (Mill in Persian) is a grinder, designed with inspiration from old wheat mills which crash the seed by rubbing two huge stone plates against each other. The product is made of wood and stone which represent the original materials being used for constructing the traditional mills. The stone parts crash the seeds while the wooden part is a bowl for serving the grinded herbs.

Summer eXpression is a project being organized by Uminova eXpression in order to reveal, develop and link up young creators and talented producers in the Umeå region. This project wants to celebrate well-designed useful articles and work to ensure that a larger range of these items are produced locally for those who are curious and creative, want to broaden their portfolio and learn more about design, production, packaging, and pricing. From idea to finished product in a small production run!

Marzieh Tangestani has been one of the ten selected young creators who has designed three different products during the six-week project.
