2009, RoyalVKB

A decorated cutlery set. Aim was to design cutlery for every day use and the set contains therefore only four basic elements: knife, fork, spoon, and desert spoon.
The knife that you need in the morning for bread and butter should also suit evening dinners.
The design is based upon the archetypical shape of cutlery and is made robust and heavy. This is in favour of grip and balance. It may seem plain at first but the backsides are embossed with remarkably thin lines of different patterns as a reference to the lusciously decorated cutlery designs of the past. Because of this you can make a sober table setting and a more frivolous table setting whith the cutlery upside down.
