matzah baking kit

Invited by the Israel museum to design a project for the exhibition “To Go: Contemporary Designs for Jewish Ritual Objects” ,the project matzah baking kit was developed. The kit is specially designed to prepare Matzah bread. It includes everything needed to make unleavened bread – a recipe specific measuring cup, a dough cutter, a sand clock that reminds one that the whole baking procedure should not take longer than 18 minutes, a rolling pin, an apron and some redlers – aerating stamps to stop the bread from rising. All of these tools are placed in a display box that also serves as a mixing bowl. The box can be wrapped up inside the pocket of the baking apron for safe storage and transport. As Matzah baking follows many specific rules and has to be done quickly, the materials are inspired by chemistry equipment and were chosen to be in line with the Passover traditions
while also bringing these traditions to the present time. Inspired by the fact that Passover is not just about eating specific foods but also about storytelling, the spikes on the redlers are in the shape of a running person, making it easier to explain the hasty exit from Egypt to children. While baking, adults and kids can stamp many little people making their way through the dessert.

the apron serves as a packaging for the whole kit

the kit is placed in the big pocked before it is wrapped in the apron

the packaging of the kit can be used to prepare the dough in the integrated bowl, and to use the flat surface for rolling and cutting

a small oval cutter is included in the kit
