The Cutlery Project is a minimalist design created by Koichi Futatsumata for valerie objects. This cutlery is formed with a combination of flat surfaces and octagonal sections. Futatsumata was inspired by his favorite technical pencil. Cutlery usually has a flat surface because of its functional point of view. With this cutlery, flat surfaces are remained only at both ends, and main part of the body is octagonal shape in section. This provides distinguished comfort and function: adequate sharpness in edge brought comfort when holding and rotating. As a result, the form, which can fit one’s hand in any uses, adds individuality and sculptural feature. The range includes a spoon, a knife, a fork and a pair of chopsticks.
