Model Kit Cutlery

These Special Spoons Can Be Popped Out of Their Plastic Frames for Use

— November 1, 2013 — Art & Design
There's a bit of fun infused in this set of Special Spoons, designed for Royal VKB. The collection of five unique utensils is molded together within a plastic frame, much like you'd expect to find inside the box of an unmade model car. To use these eating implements, you must first snap them out separately.

Ineke Hans presents the pieces in at least six different colors of black, white, red, yellow, purple and green. Each one has its particular specialty for dealing with the fussier parts of a snack, a meal or various hors d'oeuvre; you've got little spatulas, spreaders, scoops, a miniature sieve and a handy two-pronged fork. The Special Spoons would be equally appreciated at a casual picnic and with fancy appetizers.
