hak-byoung kim is a korean designer who designed ‘flostick’, an entry in our ‘dining in 2015’ competition. these disposable chopsticks take the entire life cycle of the utensils into consideration. the wooden stick is covered in multiple ‘leaves’ which peel off after each use. once all the layers have been removed the stick can be inserted into the ground, allowing a seed at the bottom to sprout into a plant.
