A cutlery set in satin or polished stainless steel.


It took five years, on and off, and five or six sets of prototypes to find out what normal eating utensils should be about. In the end, adjustments of 1/2mm and even 1/4mm to the profiles made the difference between the right line and balance in the hand and something lacking in knife-, fork- and spoon-ness. As design projects go, this one tested new ground in its lack of visible traces of Design, and its success on the market has encouraged me to believe that this kind of project is the way forward. Working on it I came to understand how much better it is to design things which don’t disturb the user, which just feel right without asking to be noticed, and this led directly to Super Normal.
