Japanese Architecture and Industrial Design studio Nendo, in collaboration with metalwork company Kobayashi Kogyo have created these primitive looking yet exquisite line of silverware. The innovative cutlery was conceived to recall a carved out flint stone and thus create a powerful juxtaposition between the smooth, machined edges and rough sandblasted surfaces.
The process used to create the cutlery also made a reference to stone carving with the sheets of metal pressed seven times and the ends cut straight.
The range will be available from Seibu department stores in Japan from 22 October.
