the skeleton cutlery collection by nendo reduces knifes, forks, and spoons to the absolute minimum, limiting the amount of material used while still retaining their use and purpose. left with only the outline of their form, like the image of a skeleton reflected in an x-ray, the cutlery maximizes its functionality by hooking onto various places in the kitchen, such as wall hangers, drying trays, or the rim of a cup. the collection is presented at the 2018 fall edition of maison et objet in paris.

created for ‘the cutlery project’ of antwerp-based design label valerie objects, skeleton comes in four different colors, silver, black, copper, and gold, and is PVD coated and to provide an anti-scratch and dirt-repellent surface. in addition to the four items, nendo has also designed a dedicated stand and wall hook to display the set.
