ETIQUETTE FOR NOVEL FOOD
Fungi Cutlery was developed within the collaborative project "Fungi Mutarium" between Livin Studio and Utrecht University. It is designed specifically to eat agar "FUs", a novel food product based on agar (seaweed gelatin substitute) and fungi mycelium.
Scratch the fungi off the wall of this sensual cutlery and simultaneously mix with the sweet or sour sauce that tops your favorite agar FU.
Round Chops has two functions. It is used like chopsticks to take pieces as well as it is used as a holder for the FU. It is the most social one of the cutlery set, wanting you to hand over the FU on top to your dinner partner.
Conquer and cut the FU into pieces with the elegantly shaped hollknife. Don´t let the sauce go away either and soak it up through the straw function.
The shape of the moon spoon glides along your agar FU to reach even the tiniest fungi fruit bodies on it. It can also be loaded with the delicious agar „meat“.
We are planning to kickstart the cutlery in early 2015.
