I wanted to make a fondue set built around the affection
that I feel for my family. My main design goal was creating a personalized experience that highlights common bonds (the pot and stand) as well as individual differences (the forks). The pot needed to have even heat distribution so that the fondue (either cheese or chocolate) would stay warm without burning, and the stand needed to be very stable to prevent spills. I wanted something with smooth surfaces that would be easy to clean.
