for the 10th edition of the steinbesser’s experimental gastronomy based in amsterdam, an exclusive dinner is being served up by two-michelin star chef edwin vinke. not only will the dinner showcase the contemporary uniqueness of meticulous food preparation, the experience includes making the hungry diners utilize unusual cutlery while eating their food. the utensils used during the dinner has been specially produced by designers stian korntved ruud and sarah hurtigkarl.

 

stian korntved ruud has an ongoing project of crafting spoons made completely of timber in which he sources from native forests, and then carves by hand with tools. using precision, patience and an array of forms, the spoon- shapes all have individuality and is a sculptural piece in itself. meanwhile, danish maker sarah hurtigkarl has exhibited an ethereal installation searching for the border between cutlery, art and jewelry. resembling fascinating artifacts, together, the two creatives have carefully crafted the metal utensils which complements the contemporary tone of the overall food experience.
