Quirky Minimalist Flatware By Nendo

A creative take on functional and sustainable design.

Designed by Nendo founder Oki Sato for Valerie Objects, the Skeleton cutlery set displays the Japanese designer’s fascination with outlines, clean lines, and creativity. Beyond both the elegant aesthetic and the bold personality of the set, the quirky minimalist flatware offers a fresh take on sustainable design. The designer limited the amount of material, searching for the absolute minimal form. Inspired by the X-ray images of bones, Oki Sato explored the simple shape of the cutlery to create graceful silhouettes.

While the Skeleton cutlery uses less material than classic flatware, the eye-catching cut-out sections double as a practical feature. The user can easily hang the cutlery on the side of a bowl or cup. A wall hook and the dedicated cutlery stand also allow the user to display the set in a kitchen and keep it close at hand. The Skeleton quirky minimalist flatware includes a spoon, fork, knife, and teaspoon. All of them boast a PVD coating that makes the surface anti-scratch and dirt-repellent. The series comes in classic Silver and Black as well as in more refined options such as Copper and Gold. Photographs© Nendo, Valerie Objects.
