Folding Chopstick Basket

Employing red and brown single use chopsticks, designer Bryan Parks has found an extended application for the traditionally disposable item: a folding basket. When open, the basin measures 13.5″ by 12″ with four inches of depth. After use, it folds flat. Of course there’s functional value here, but perhaps the conversation-starting uncommon design impresses us the most.

Carry-On Chopsticks and Case

With bamboo tips that unscrew and store inside perfectly balanced stainless steel handles, Snow Peak’s carry-on chopsticks are an exemplar of the form. A new, premium leather carrying case from Portland, Oregon-based Tanner Goods will age beautifully and ensure that your next outdoor meal of ramen noodles, trail mix and peanut butter will still retain a touch of exotic glamour.
