Designer Mikiya Kobayashi has changed the consumption of sushi for the better with his 'Restless Chopsticks.' The culinary sets are slightly raised near the tips, allowing them to hover just above tables when not in use.

Standard chopstick designs have presented health issues. Their structure necessitates contact with napkins and counters, and it is for this reason that chopstick rests have come to the fore. Restaurants have had to invest in the pieces, although they may be able to get around the extra purchase with Kobayashi's Restless Chopsticks.

The bright color scheme adds flavor to the collection, providing further reason for them to bring about conversation at any dinner event (as if they needed another one).
