pharrell williams + pentatonic launch the 'pebble', a dining toolkit made from recycled CDs

pharrell williams, the multifaceted artist who has designed sneakers and collaborated on residential developments, has now joined forces with pentatonic to launch a dining toolkit. developed in response to the increasing environmental threats caused by single-use plastic, the ‘pebble’ is a compact and portable design that includes a knife, fork, spoon, straw, and chopsticks. the case is made from recycled CDs, while the handles are derived from recycled food packaging.

the pebble by OTHERWARE is produced by pentatonic, a circular economy company, in partnership with i am OTHER, the creative collective assembled by pharrell williams. priced at $59 USD, the pebble weighs about the same as a smartphone and comes with a carabiner-style clip and lanyard for easy carrying. the case measures 105mm x 52mm x 54mm and the utensils are dishwasher safe.

the device serves as an alternative to single-use plastic straws and utensils. it is estimated that londoners alone dispose of 2 billion plastic straws every year, while 40 billion single-use utensils are wasted in the USA every 12 months. furthermore, all single-use plastic cutlery, plates, and straws will be banned across the EU in 2021. see other projects involving pharrell williams on designboom here.
