Looking at Till Kobes' cutlery, you will begin to understand that just because a certain form has worked for so long, it doesn't mean that a divergent design won't be functional. This contemporary collection of eating utensils serves up some practical advantages that you don't get with many conventional sets.
The designer's concept begins with fairly straight strips of stainless steel that are cut in as few places as possible to shape the heads of forks, spoons and knives. The lengths of the fine brushed metal are then bent in two places between the head and the middle, creating a zigzagging profile for each piece. With consistent folds kept throughout Till Kobes' cutlery, the implements can be stacked for space efficiency, and propped up on their sides to avoid dirtying the table between courses.
