Dig In – Jewelry Objects for Contemporary Dining Culture reimagines traditional eating utensils, inviting users to actively engage in the design process. Each meticulously crafted piece is made from 925 silver, ensuring personalized functionality and durability while evoking nostalgia for bygone customs. The Shell Spoon pays homage to the timeless elegance of nature’s creations. Inspired by early eating utensils, this radical design recalls a time when stone axes and shells were indispensable dining tools. Upon examining the curvature of a scallop shell, it became evident that nature had already perfected the art of scooping, pushing, and separating. To enhance usability, the spoon features an extended handle gently curved downwards for a comfortable grip and versatile usage. To further enhance the Shell Spoon’s utility, a complementary spatula was developed, its handle mirroring the curve of the shell spoon. Together, these pieces form a harmonious unit, blending ancient forms with modern functionality. Both objects represent a return to timeless traditions adapted for contemporary dining. The compact handle of the Shell Spoon reduces the distance between food and eater, enhancing the dining experience while maintaining elegance and refinement. It transcends mere utility, serving as a symbol of culinary craftsmanship and heritage. As both an eating utensil and a work of art, the Shell Spoon embodies the enduring allure of tradition and the timeless beauty of silver craftsmanship. Dig In – Jewelry Objects for Contemporary Dining Culture explores three pathways for cutlery evolution: revitalizing traditional practices, blurring the lines between adornment and utility, and deepening the connection between user and object. In a world influenced by changing eating habits and global cuisines, Dig In encourages viewers to reconsider traditional utensil forms, prioritizing sensory perception and tactile experience to enhance meal enjoyment.

The shell spoon pairs perfectly with the Dig In – spatula but has to be purchased individually.
