Collection of unusual and creative tableware designs from around the world.

On/Off Mug

At first glance it’s simply a standard black mug with big white letters that say “OFF”. Nothing fancy, but once you add the hot beverage of your choice, the mug changes color to white and in big black letters it states: “ON”. [link]

    “Designed by Doha Chebib, these eco-friendly Log Bowls come in a large variety of colors and are handmade using only unwanted waste wood from storms, development, and re-landscaping.”

    - That’s how.

    Nice stuff.

    They are all too clever. Mere cleverness is not good enough. They are no more than an excuse to market something to make a buck.——Doug

  17. Goldie

  20. Jad

  21. Sexy Cheese

    Great list. Thanks!

  22. Bill in Detroit

    Sorry to spoil the party but you got the tool name wrong for every one of the Wrenchware. That’s a box wrench for the fork, pliers for the knife and an open-end (or spanner, depending on which side of the pond you are on) for the spoon.

    It would be even nicer if the knife terminated in a screwdriver of some sort and all three were actually functional (fitting a standard size nut or screw).

    An otherwise excellent post. I’m going to try following the bowl-in-a-log link because it looks like an interesting lathe project.

  23. Viculio

  39. bruno

    most of this stuff is neither practical, nor eco-friendly, nor useful. While some of it is nice “conceptual” stuff, things like the aplle core bowl are just ridiculous.
    We need less stuff in the world!

  40. Stranger
