The Gio Tirotto 'No Pause' cutlery set is made up of 3D-printed prototypes that appear more like a set of workshop tools than utensils. Created by Italian designer Gio Tirotto, the set aims to push the limit between art and design in order to erase it. The No Pause project is described on Tirotto's website as tools that are "mixed with the table set, as if both these different objects wanted to change room, as if they wanted to describe something else."

The handles of the cutlery are modeled after those of screwdrivers and chisels, while the knife is shaped to replicate a hacksaw. The designs re-imagines the possibility of utensils, specifically meant by Tirotto to merge irony and etiquette. The Gio Tirotto No Pause utensils have the ability to blend as tools in a workshop.
