Fork, Knife and Spoon Go Where?

The plastic cutlery set JOIN has a very unique and playful joining mechanism inspired by an old Japanese game. It challenges the classic table setting and toys with proper etiquette. It’s absolutely brilliant. I want it bad – functional and whimsical. Explains why it was awarded the Design Plus award.

    Too bad these aren’t available in metal. Can’t see myself using plastic utensils on an everyday basis.

    Nice, really nice,

    for a plastic version I can imagine you might want to reinforce the cutouts.
    In a steel version, this wouldn't even be necessary.

    I can already see them standing on a table in a restaurant

    This won't get past the safety Nazis if made in any material stronger than cardboard, as it is essentially an anti-personnel weapon — and a self-righting one at that!

  • THIS IS AWESOMEEEEEE !!!!! CAN NEE BELIEVE NO ONE THOUGHT OF IT BEFORE !!! love the elegance of the design

    It’s a pretty funky idea.. but (i’m probably just being dumb btw)how does it go together?! I’ve been staring at it for 10 minutes now and it doesn’t look like it’s possible. Like once you’ve got 2 of them fitted together the gap in the middle’s closed off for the last one.

    I dunno… it’s cool though
