kibisi along with muuto have designed ‘hang around and toss around’, a collection of kitchen utensils that combine form, function and craftsmanship. the series will be previewed for the first time at maison et objet 2011. the collection of simple wooden tools are precisely designed and crafted for improved functionality in the kitchen. jens martin skibsted, partner of copenhagen based kibisi says: ‘we were originally inspired by bhutanese crafts. their wooden everyday tools seem to have layers of stories and thoughts. we concocted that with our scandinavian design heritage and our idea-lead, no fluff design philosophy – and this little invention was bread.’

the sculpted and continuous form of ‘hang around’ is interrupted by a slim extrusion cut from the backside that allows the utensil to cling to the side of a pot or pan. this minimal alteration to the everyday object provides the chef with a cleaner workspace and a more effective use of time.

  • Octo, the last photo are the salad servers, they don’t have a notch. And I am hoping you meant “kerf”, and I don’t have a comment for the different sizes of pans/thicknesses… but it would be interesting to see

  • KIRF! wouldn’t the bowl and pan also have different radii? is that saucer sloped? and where did the notch go in the last photo?

  • you need to clean your pan !!!

  • Nice object, although not all pans etc have the same edge thickness or profile, so in terms of its use i’m skeptical.
