Salvador Dali – Ménagère – An Almost Sorta Look a Like

Salvador Dali – Ménagère - An Almost Sorta Look a Like

One of our top ten posts is about the cutlery set designed by Salvador Dali called the Ménagère.

We haven’t found them for sale anywhere but we have found an almost sorta kinda look a like set available.

There are 5 spoons in different pattern and 1 fork in a set and they are made of zinc alloy material. I would not put these in the dishwasher.

Are they the same set? No. Are they close? Yup. I believe they have that same sort of look and feel. It’s your call. The name of this set is rather long and complicated so just check out the link below.

Francis Bitonti Setae Flatware

Francis Bitoni FlatwareMany 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.”

Yamazaki Cache Gold Accent Flatware

Yamazaki Cache Gold Accent FlatwareI must say that people are really interested in gold cutlery for a myriad of reasons from flavor to flair. The Yamazaki Cache Gold Accent set isn’t entirely gold but uses it as an accent, hence the name. They say a picture says a thousand words and I think the photo above really shows it’s more than just gold that makes this cutlery set an amazing design.

Made of dishwasher safe (but I wouldn’t trust gold to my dishwasher) 18/8 stainless steel this is a single 5 piece place setting that consists of a salad fork, dinner fork, knife, soup spoon, and teaspoon. A serving set is also available. Yamazaki provides a full lifetime warranty against defects, so if the gold does delaminate you can send it back.
