Unique Cutlery by Zaha Hadid
I, for one, am a fan of understated design elements -- the things that don't jump out, but get admired more by chance by people who notice details. And as far as I'm concerned this cutlery set designed by architect Zaha Hadid, with the fluid and unique design, is one of those items. Artistic yet surprisingly simple and functional, the two spoons are my favorites. They seem fun to use but in a sophisticated way -- reminding me of grown-up versions of the silly-straw, but without the cheap plastic and obnoxious colors.
The $250 set should be available starting this month, but with a very limited U.S. distribution.
