Wooden Spoon Set Of 3
In the modern, gadget dominated kitchen products landscape, wooden spoons remain traditional and indispensable. A variety of useful operations were considered in the design of these basic utensils: let’s take the corner spoon for example. It is angled as a scraper, has a profile sculpted for precise stirring, and acts as a taster, but still carries the round and sleek language of the spoon family set. The almost round handle of all the spoons gives an easy and firm but directional grip. The bold Kikkerland red on the delicate beechwood suggests a hint of personality but is actually employed for durability to prevent from staining in long-term usage. Designed for Kikkerland, Inc by Josh Owen.
