Silhouette Spoon Forks

The InSet Salad Servers are Compact Kitchen Utensils

— February 7, 2011 — Art & Design
A lot of food serving utensils can be big ugly things that take up too much room in the cutlery drawer, but these interlocking InSet Salad Servers are a recipe of compact convenience.

Designed by Judith Hoefel, the stainless steel utensil set is comprised of a large fork that has been cut out of the spoon, leaving its outline intact. Able to be stored one inside the other, the InSet Salad Servers provide just the right amount of spike and surface to transport lettuce to your plate.
