Typography, with its mathematical beauty, has influenced more unrelated objects than one could begin to guess. This Shou Jing Ti cutlery set is one of them, inspired by the elegant lines of the exquisite Emperor Song Hui Zong script.

Exaggeration and elongation were explored respectively in the ends and the shafts of the silverware. Like elegant lines drawn across a page in ebony ink, the handles broaden gradually and then taper quickly at the tips. The larger collection of the forks, knives and spoons includes pure stainless steel pieces with a smooth luster that complements their sleek shapes.

Designer Kate Chung has also developed a set of chopsticks to match the Shou Jing Ti cutlery set, a bottle opener and more. Stats for Calligraphic Eating Utensils Trending: Older & Mild
