It looks like a diaper pin or a hair pin, but it isn’t.

Helsinki, Finland, based designer Lincoln Kayiwa was inspired by the toucan bird when he designed the sterling silver Tukaani, a connected set of chopsticks for the clumsy among us. A killer tool for the sushi aficionado.

The loop is the key element: it holds and lets you manipulate the chopsticks and can also be used to hang, store and display the Tukaani. In addition, it is eco-friendly as it prevents tons of waste chopsticks.

Lincoln Kayiwa was born in an architectural family in Kampala, Uganda in 1979. He graduated from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, Utah in 2008. He currently lives and works in Helsinki.

He is also the designer of the Dino coat hangers featured here as a skeleton closet. Stats for Cheating Chopsticks Trending: Older & Chilly
