From General Tso’s on the go to Colonel Sanders at your office desk, forward-thinking designers are devising novel ideas to ensure that you’ll never miss a bite.
Roll n Roll is an unfortunately named but nonetheless stylish set of portable chopsticks. Winning a bronze medal in the 2007 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), the set of hollow chopsticks can be rolled open and then rolled up to make an attractive metal cuff-like bracelet.
Din-Ink cutlery caps transform everyday ballpoint pens into implements of consumption. The three-piece set, a first-prize winner in Design Boom’s Dining in 2015 competition, includes a fork-, knife- and spoon-cap made out of biodegradable materials for environmentally conscious desktop dining.
