Mu cutlery collection. Toyo ito.


Blog Widget by LinkWithin

Japanese architect Toyo Ito continues to build his family of objects for the mise-en-place of the table.

The MU cutlery collection is created with a fluid and delicate design. The hexagonal section of the handle is created using a mold and an intricate manufacturing process that involves many stages. The precision of the slim, full handle is reminiscent of the shape of Oriental chopsticks and contrasts with the rounded profiles of the spoons and the knife blades.

Each piece of stainless steel cutlery has a slim handle that finishes in a hexagonal profile at the tip.

The range includes a fork, knife and spoon for the table, a fork, a knife and spoon for dessert, a pastry fork, a tea spoon, a coffee spoon and a mocha coffee spoon. Also available are salad servers, a ladle, a cake server and a serving spoon and fork.
