back in 2017, snøhetta designed the interiors and visual identity for copenhagen’s restaurant barr. by developing the wating utensils, the norwegian firm deepens the holistic design experience that complements the interior architecture and graphic design. the carefully crafted cutlery set builds on the restaurant’s conceptual expression, echoing the look and feel of barr while also enhancing the overall restaurant experience.

featuring a stonewash surface, the bespoke cutlery presents an approachable, sturdy feel that adds contrast and novelty to the typical fine dining experience. by treating the surface of the material in this way, the steel color naturally transitions into a darker gray tone. this contributes to a unique expression which is in line with barr’s food philosophy, an ideology where every ingredient and its processing is carefully selected to create a new and original dinning adventure.

overall, the cutlery conveys a nostalgic yet timeless expression through recognizable cutouts in the handles. the shapes are carefully aligned, creating harmony between the individual pieces of cutlery so that they form a natural whole. the handles are shaped to contribute to a more ergonomic experience and are designed to easily stock into each other and lie steadily in the table setting.
