Tukaani: Chopsticks Made Simple

Posted on August 11, 2008 Under Design

Not everyone has the dexterity necessary to handle chopsticks, but looking like an amateur in Asian cusine isn’t desirable either. For those who can’t pick up pieces of Unagi under pressure, Finnish designer Lincoln Kayiwa came up with the TUKAANI eating device. Inspired by a Toucan’s beak (not by difficulty eating Froot Loops), the dishwasher-safe and spliniter-free stainless steel sticks are gripped similarly to traditional chopsticks, but are connected by a simple curl that allows for easy grabbing.
