JOIN by DING3000

Hanover-based studio DING3000 (Carsten Schelling, Sven Rudolph and Ralf Webermann) have designed JOIN, a set of cutlery that includes a fork, spoon and knife, which also doubles as a sculptural decoration for the dining table.

The starting point for JOIN cutlery began with looking at brainteasers and three-dimensional puzzles which the trio ordered on the internet. One object that stood out was a simple japanese toy in which three sticks are joined with a square knot. One wooden stick has an elongated opening in which the other two notched sticks are intertwined in such a way that they form a small sculpture that stays fixed together securely without any adhesives. Wanting to use this method of joining, the group needed to find something fitting that came in three. “Ultimately, we came up with the trio made up of fork, knife and spoon, forming a small sculpture that stands securely that shows the three original wooden sticks onto which we glued a fork, knife and spoon”, says DING3000.

“All of a sudden, what we had here was not only a utensil but in fact, a completely new form of table decoration. now you can really forget about folding all those napkins into the shape of swans, and besides, time spent waiting for the meal can be spent toying with the puzzle” – Carsten Schelling of DING3000 the eating utensils are developed in co-operation with BASF and produced by Cologne based design manufacturer Konstantin Slawinski.
