Optic spoon

Elin Flognman


This spoon is made of birch wood and an antique glass lens.

Part of Elin Flognman’s first series of unique cutlery pieces. Each spoon is made from materials with a history, like her parents old copper roof, wood from trees cut down in a nearby park and lenses from used glasses, contemplating the experience of the meal in different ways. What is a correct food culture? Is it ok to eat with your fingers? What if the table becomes the spoon?
