Courtly Cutlery

Courtly Cutlery

In creating Jarosinksi & Vaugoin’s design No. 192, Thomas Feichtner drew inspiration from the classic methods involved in producing utensils by hand, a process typically used by the manufactory. The resulting product employs a clever combination of clear surfaces and radiuses with a theme of two diametrically intersecting phases that together lend the cutlery a highly individual character. Robust yet refined, the collection is well-balanced for both casual and formal table setting alike.

Mind Over Food

Mind Over Food

Mind Power is potent and it can manipulate or simulate circumstances that may seem fictitious and surreal. Based on this premise is the plate and glass combo of the ‘SET TO MIMIC’ tableware. The idea is to put a microchip in us, which interacts with our brain cells so that it can register smells, tastes and textures of our favorite food. When bland or ‘health foods’ are placed on the plate, the microchip manipulates our senses to feel as if we are eating our favorite food.

Putting the FLAT in Flatware

Putting the FLAT in Flatware

This clever cutlery collection goes to show that flatware doesn’t always have to mirror the same mundane shape. This contemporary interpretation is not only different and just as pleasant to use, its flat, folded profile also makes each piece nestable with the next! Together they create a unique geometric visual that’s sure to be a conversation starter.

Considerate Ceramics

Considerate Ceramics

The Ceramic Scoop Bowl isn’t just cool because of its Cvisual oddness… it’s also designed to accommodate individuals with muscular conditions and is an ideal eating aid for one-handed users. The vertical wall and sloping bottom helps users easily guide food onto their utensils while also allowing the plate to rest at the edge of the table helping to eliminate spillage. For added safety, the bowl also features a nitrile rubber base to prevent sliding and provide a stable eating platform.

Cutting Edge Cutlery

Cutting Edge Cutlery

Named “Edge” for their single edge design, this cutlery set is produced with a hot stamp which makes it possible to remove the slice present in cold working. This cleaner shape further defines the archetypical silhouette of industrial flatware. As simple as it gets, they’re perfect for any dinner table, formal or casual.

Totem Part Two

Totem Part Two

A new twist to the old Stackable Cup, this new Tilt Cup has a clipped edge that enhances drying. When you place the glass upside down, the water trickles and drains out through the gap created by the clipped edge. The tilted angle also enhances the weight balance so the cup can stand up by itself when overturned. I think this will work!

Salt Shaker With A Difference

Salt Shaker With A Difference

Most of us are guilty of sprinkling generous amounts of salt over our food, especially when we have intake restrictions. Mamma is a saltshaker with a difference. It has an integrated spoon-like lip with markings that lets you know how much salt you are going to sprinkle on the food. The main aim of this project is to reduce the intake of salt. The video explains it how…

Subtle Sensory Feedback Through Food

Subtle Sensory Feedback Through Food

The Double Contrast Glass, Jug, Hob Guard, Plate B, Mug, Cutlery and Chopping Board with Chopping Knife are all a part of the Leaven Range of Cutlery And Kitchen Tools for a person who is suffering from partial or full sight loss. Essentially the range is very interactive and with subtle hints and indentations is able to provide sensory feedback to the user. With the intention of making the dining experience more confident and fulfilling, I think designer Simon Kinneir has addressed and resolved quite a few key issues.

This Cup Has A Ring To It

This Cup Has A Ring To It

In an attempt to make life simpler for those with sight disabilities, designer Soon-sik Choi offers an effortless solution to the task of filling a cup. When the cup is almost full the handle makes a distinct ‘ring’ sound. The audio cue of the Xylophone Cup is a good enough warning for the user to know that the cup is almost to the brim and to stop pouring more liquid.
