Flatware That Will Hang Around

If you're spending any time entertaining (or being entertained) over the holiday season, you'll no doubt be faced the challenges of eating while standing up.  It's the single reason I'm a fan of one-bite appetizers.  Nothing ruins the holiday spirit more than holding a plate of food in one hand, a glass of wine in the other and being forced to stuff your cutlery in your pocket.  It's clumsy and could lead to embarrassing questions like, "Is that a spoon in your pocket, or ..."

Industrial designer Ivan Erkic has taken the age-old design of flatware and given it a clever twist or rather a bend, to help make it more useful.  It's all about looking at part of a design and asking, "what else could we do with this."  Re-imagining the handle of the typical knife, fork and spoon doesn't hinder it's original purpose and extends their use into many other areas.
