I love cutlery designs from the art world, how can we forget even Salvador Dali got into it.
Wataru Kobayashi is a Japanese designer that has designed a flatware set for entomophagy (that means eating bugs).
This set includes a spatula for bug mushing, a fork, chopsticks and a set of pincers used for eating the larger crunchier and more dangerous bugs. And some nice ceramic plates as well. There is no spoon.
Now be warned that this is a concept art piece only but has a great statement about the current track we are headed on when it comes to world food:
“BUGBUG, the picnic cutlery set for eating insects” are for promoting people eat insects as a meal for a large-scale food crisis predicted in forthcoming 2050. The target users are a family of 2020 and the people who are highly concerned with food such as foodies. This product is designed for the minds how people avoid to be caused the food crisis and how people succeed food culture to next generations. BUGBUG is expected to have the different approach to head off the crisis. The product is meaningful to be joyful for eating insects and stretch food culture.’

Wow, this 4 piece cutlery set from Benry looks really good with those gold highlights, and its 24k gold plating none the less.
It is made with 18/10 stainless steel, so between this and the gold plate you really should take the extra care to hand wash and not put in the dishwasher.
And just to be clear that this is a single serving flatware set of 1 dinner fork, 1 dinner knife, 1 dinner spoon, and 1 teaspoon.

Over two years ago we did a post about how Liftware was bought by Google. They make a spoon and fork that attach to a system which is designed to help people with Parkinson’s tremors.
I’m glad to report they have gone to market and are now selling this helpful cutlery to the public.
As you can see from the video above, the impact on a person’s lifestyle is very dramatic.

This is an interesting set of cutlery that is imported from Alytimes. Let’s be clear right away that this is just one setting, it is just one each of a fork, knife, spoon, and teaspoon.
Made of dishwasher safe 201 stainless steel, this single serving set has a look that just works.
And I love the packaging 🙂
