Thousands of years ago our ancestors were making their first tools out of bones. Today’s human beings still respond to natural references such as these. Bones is a set of cutlery that inherits from these times. The organic forms adapt to the shape of the hand while the material offers a warm and unique touch sensation. The knife, fork and spoons are made out of injection moulded alumina ceramic. This material is know for being nearly as hard as diamond and is often used in industrial applications requiring the highest resistance materials.
The name "Bones" was chosen because of the organic form and the origin of the material from which they are made: Bone China.
