“STONE ON STONE AND
THE WORLD WAS NOT THE SAME AGAIN”


Our proposal is inspired by the first stone carved tools created by humans, this technological advance marked an important evolutionary change 2.5 million years ago.


The carved oak wood of the handle is reminiscent of stone carvings and the O-rings that exert pressure between the handle and the blade are like the natural fibers with which the pieces were joined.
Oak wood + stainless steel and O-rings.




The Table Knife Project brings together the Barcelona based cutlery company Florentine Kitchen Knives and 28 local design studios and collaborators to create 56 extraordinary table knives - personal interventions to an existing model designed by the cutlery firm. Curated by the FKK team and Barcelona based designer Berta Julià Sala, the project is supported by the branding and visual design of Gymnasium and the images of local photographer Coke Bartrina.
