New Money Silverware by Tomas Ekström
by Harry / May 25, 2011

A prototype set of metal cutlery modeled on one of the most iconic plastic cutlery designs is reimagined as long lasting silverware by Tomas Ekström, aka Kallbrand.

Says Ekström, "The plastic original carries symbols for recyclability and biodegradability - which I suppose is a good thing - but something I still find quite ironic. Making throw-away cutlery recyclable doesn't change the fact that it should not be made at all."


"The point of the project is mostly to rebel against the dumbed down notion of what is 'green' that we are beeing fed by corporations, and instead put forth that making durable, quality products is the true way of being environmentally friendly in almost all cases."
