Japanese studio Nendo created this for the Belgian brand Valerie Objects, a wonderful combination of form and function cutlery called “Skeleton”, which kinna fits with Halloween coming up. It’s a sculptural set of cutlery that can be hooked onto cups, plates or whatever to keep the flatware from soiling the nice tablecloth. They call it Skeleton because it’s what cutlery looks like when x-rayed (so they say).
There are four pieces to the set: a spoon, a teaspoon, a fork and a knife. They feature a distinctive kink where the handle joins the head. That’s the trick in this treat.
Available in stainless steel or a black PVD coating, the set comes with a dedicated stand and wall hook for display purposes. It’s not for sale yet, but will be at Valerie Objects this December for about $30 per utensil.
