The surrealist cutlery encouraging us to enjoy our mealtimes
If, like us, you have a tendency to rush mealtimes, you might too be intrigued by the surrealist cutlery commissioned by Amsterdam-based design studio Steinbeisser. Part of their annual Experimental Gastronomy food and design event taking place in Basel next month, the pieces are alternatives to your standard, does-the-job tableware. The intention? Getting us to spend more time enjoying sit-down dinners. We're particularly partial to Japanese artist Maki Okamoto’s recycled hybrid cutlery; it would certainly cut through those awkward dinner party silences.
