In need of a new set of scales? How about trying something else.
Balance is a project by Swiss/Japanese designer Nadine Fumiko Schaub, created as an alternative to cheap and replaceable kitchen appliances. It is made entirely of durable and natural materials such as wood, porcelain, brass and marble stone that has been locally crafted. These scales doe not have a display, instead it relies on human touch to tell if the weights are balanced.
