Ancient inspired cutlery by Nendo Design Studio

Modern cutlery has been refined into an exceptionally elegant and functional state. Oki Sato, of the popular Japanese design studio Nendo, is rethinking the ancient tools by creating historically inspired eating accessories with modern flair. 

The designer has unveiled a new series called Sekki, a three-piece set of cutlery whose irregular shape echoes back to the days when people used basic stone-carved tools. In Japanese, the word Sekki means “stone.” The items appear ‘fatter’ than the typical skinny forks and knives we are used to and the finish is a combination of reflective polish and sandblasted matte.
