Peleg Design – Functionality, Humor and Aesthetics

Peleg Design – the Israeli company behind the Jumbo, the original elephant cutlery drainer – was founded in 2004 by Shahar Peleg who holds a degree in design and interior architecture from the Holon Institute of Technology. Since the founding of the company, Peleg's products have appeared at several international exhibitions and have won prestigious design prizes around the world, and you can today buy Peleg's products in dozens of countries across the world (not just in North America and the UK).

The key to the company's success probably lies in its commitment to developing products that are functional, funny and pleasing to the eye. Peleg Design's commitment to these three principles – functionality, humor and aesthetics – is also evident if you look at the Jumbo Drainer. First, this elephant-shaped cutlery caddy is arguably one of the most functional cutlery drainers out there as it allows excess water to drip directly into the sink. Second, the fact that Peleg decided to create its self-draining cutlery caddy in the shape of an animal, in this case an elephant, ups the fun factor. And finally, as far as beauty and aesthetics are concerned, it is certainly hard to imagine a more elegant plastic elephant!

Tip: If you already have a good cutlery caddy for your knives, forks and spoons, you can also use Peleg's Jumbo as a self-draining toothbrush mug in the bathroom. Simply put your toothbrushes in the Jumbo and place the elephant next to the bathroom sink, and excess water will drip straight into the sink.
