The team behind the Tinker Imagineers have recently completed a presentation at the Dutch Silver Museum of Schoonhoven, that showcases the varying history of this precious metal.

The designs range from those inspired by ancient times, to more modern takes on how this material has been moulded to varying uses. The title for the project is called 'World of Silver,' which is apt considering the range the installation offers. Most of the silverware is presented on a long table, so that people are able to see this development for how everything was used from hundreds of years ago right through to the present day. According to DesignBoom, "drawers hidden in the table concisely explain how technological developments influenced the characteristics of every period."

The 'World of Silver' takes visitors through a historical journey with this precious metal.
