Valerie Objects have collaborated with international designers to create ‘The cutlery project’. For this project, some of the most renowned names of design industry got united to create unique design cutlery.
The cutlery collection counted on international designers: Jinhyun Jeon, Muller Van Severen , Maarten Baas, Studio Simple, Koichi Futatsumataand Studio Wieki Somers. Basically, all of them have created the same thing: a prototype set of tools to eat with. Spoons, forks and knives. The result is six totally quirky high-end luxury sets of cutlery that surprise and delight eyes, hands and mouth.
The designs of Maarten Baas and Koichi Futatsumata are the first two sets that have been taken in production. With their interpretation of the ideal set of cutlery they will feature the Antwerp based label.

Dutch designer Maarten Baas has produced a cutlery set distinguished with his recognized playful and sketchy forms. available in silver and a brass color, the most distinctive element of the eating tools is the irregular serrated edge on the knife. the most difficult procedure during their production, bass comments ‘in a quick sketch, beauty is often found, but those spontaneous lines are often lost in an industrial process.’
Curator Veerle Wenes said: When I approached the designers and design teams to create a set of cutlery for Valerie Objects, I knew that they would each use their expertise, background and knowledge to come up with a completely divergent range of results. Some of them had already experimented with cutlery, others had been fascinated by the design for years, while for yet others it was their first foray into designing this modest eating tool. But whatever stage they were at, they all succeeded in delivering a surprise.
