Jouw Wijnsma and Martin Kullik founded Steinbeisser in 2009. In 2012 Steinbeisser launched the ‘Experimental Gastronomy’ an initiative to revolutionize the relationship between diner, dinnerware and food. Event was launched at the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy in Amsterdam. They brought international artists and world-renowned chefs to create a special dining experience with artistically created tableware, such as cutlery and dishes. Inspired by an innovative new ways to enjoy food, these unique art pieces don’t follow the normal rules of usability. Their art work forced diners to reconsider their presumptions about the relationship between tableware and the user.
These exceptional cutlery included architectural slate plate that has pieces of vibrantly colored food, resembling an urban landscape. And a 2-in-1 spoon and scissors, appealing the foodies to relate with food in a very unusual manner. Other designs included shovel plates, industrial tools like pliers, crew openers, scissors etc. transformed into unimaginable cutlery and walnut carved spoons.
For the first time these cutlery art pieces are available on Steinbeisser’s recently launched online store ‘Jouw’, for price ranging from $50 to $1900. So all you food loving people, who are keen enough to taste your foodstuff in a very different way can now go for it.
