iD/cutlery

Royal VKB have responded to today's changing lifestyles by creating collectible, individual sets of cutlery (with personality) that allow diners to choose how they want to eat at the dining table.

Matching cutlery sets could be a thing of the past, if Royal VKB has anything to do with it.

In a response to the changing lifestyles of consumers, Royal VKB have developed individual sets of cutlery - fashioned by renowned designers - that can be collected to create an ever-growing cutlery set. More importantly on the dining table, diners can choose their own cutlery to correspond to their individual taste. Each set of iD/cutlery combines four cutlery pieces made in stainless steel, a pair of chopsticks and a storage box.

Four designers were commissioned to be part of the debut launch of the cutlery, with more designers added in the near future. Richard Hutten's playful design uses his trademark 'Hutten-loop' that allows the cutlery to be hung or even used as a necklace. Ineke Hans created her own version of the archetypal cutlery set, the elaborate engravings on the back are a nod to adorned cutlery of the past. Gijs Bakker's design was based on a water drop, featuring a fork with extra long teeth for spinning spaghetti and Japanese designers Atelier Bow-Wow looked to nature using branches and leaves as inspiration.
