SUPERFUNCTIONAL CUTLERY

Royal College of Art, 2019

CONCEPT

A commentary on the many multitools.

So often advertised as the new hail-bringers to complete any task at hand, many are shooting far over the top, rendering themselves as useless.

This combination of ordinary eating devices, including chopsticks, is assembled in a rigid manner so that only one tool could be used at a time. This enforced behaviour contradicts their traditional usage, where always a combination of two objects is needed. Knive-fork or two chopsticks. The spoons form the only exception, yet the pointy ends of the chopstick aiming at your face will make it hard to eat a soup without hurting yourself.
