Name: Dessert Set
Designer: Jacques-Elie Ribeyron
Location: Paris, France
Dessert set is a minimalist design created by France-based designer Jacques-Elie Ribeyron. The project consists of a small hammer to break chocolate slabs, a nut cracker, a fruit knife, a brush, and a cutting board. All of the pieces are made of machined titanium, and feature a cap-lock system to avoid screws. The outside sleeve is made of cowhide. The set was commissioned by Wallpaper, and made in collaboration with Architectural Titanium.
I realize this puts dessert eating onto a whole new playing field, but I don’t even care. If I ever see anyone whip this out to chow down on their chocolate mousse cake, I swear I will pat that person on the back. Just the fact that the designer conceived this unbelievably foreign idea puts him on my favorite list. I can already tell you that I love the way Ribeyron packages his products. Each one snuggly fits inside its own little compartment – all in perfect order. I have a similar roll-up case for my pens called Famm.
