Many times we have covered concept designs for cutlery and every time it feels like I’m a kid again looking a flying cars or jet packs that we predicted for the future. Well we have a electric cars and water skis finally. So what about the amazing 3D printed flatware designs we keep seeing? When are they going into mass production and onto our dining room tables?
Francis Bitoni Studio uses 3D metal printing technology to create amazing cutlery in sterling silver. It’s called Setae Flatware with handles of four metal strands that intertwine gracefully to finish in a point. The spoons are interesting, the knife looks like an elfish sword, but the forks are an incredible organic design.
No sign of it being available to the public sadly. Maybe we have to wait for our own in-home 3D printer like Star Trek?
They describe the work very well on their website:
“Four independent strands cohere and separate creating a landscape of fibers nestled into the hand. The separation and cohesion of these long linear elements is used to produces local difference to beautifully satisfy the demands of a functional set of flatware.”
