Flatware has been around virtually forever, and rarely changes shape since it is so well suited to its purpose – how can one really improve upon a knife, fork or a spoon? This dinnerware collection might just represent a bend in a long, historically-straight road.

A tight curve wraps the back end of each piece, forming a slip-on clip out of the stainless-steel silverware handle. Slide it onto the side of a drinking glass, or use it to close a packet of coffee (instead of losing a scoop inside the packet).

For waiters or at dinner parties, this clever cutlery can be attached to the sides of drinks, serving trays or handheld h’orderve dishes for easy access and a free hand – no more spoons and forks slipping off the side between bites. This award winning series was created by?Ivan Erkic.
