From Stockholm-based Arket, these wooden serving utensils are crafted from 100% mango wood. Coated in black without hiding the unique details of the wood, the tools are rustically designed yet elegant.
Brooklyn-based designer Selena Liu merges humor and child-like joy with functional objects, and her Serving Friends utensils are no exception. Coming in three playful styles—flowers, hands and wavy—these wooden spoons bring whimsy to the dining table.
Sculpted in Jonathan Adler’s Soho studio, these hand-shaped serving utensils are then cast in solid brass and finished with a food-safe lacquer. Little sculptures in their own right, these table tools serve up a bit of surrealism as they sparkle. In the most literal sense, these are hands ready to serve—but they should avoid acidic foods and be washed by hand.
