Three things I want to convey after receiving the Red Dot Design Award
STIIK PROJECT is a project launched in 2017 with the concept of "chopsticks that look like cutlery." We propose a new view of the rapidly changing modern eating habits from the perspective of ``chopsticks'', and are supported by many people. STIIK is actually used in more than 20 restaurants around the world, including South Korea and Singapore. In 2020, it won the Red Dot Design Award, one of the world's three major design awards . Let me tell you three things about the one and only chopsticks STIIK.
1. A concept that sharply captures the eating habits of modern people
The first is a concept that sharply captures the eating habits of modern people . In Japan, you can enjoy gourmet foods from all over the world, such as sandwiches for breakfast, Chinese food for lunch, and Japanese food for dinner. STIIK is "cutlery-like chopsticks" designed to suit the free eating style of today's people . Since ancient times, chopsticks have been one of the most important eating utensils for Japanese people, and they have been placed alongside cutlery in dining scenes that mix Japanese and Western styles, and have evolved in the pursuit of making them more beautiful and more functional. I was allowed to.
2. Dimensions of future chopsticks: 26cm
The second item is the future chopsticks, which are made possible by Japanese bamboo technology and measure 26cm . "Hito ata han" means 1.5 times the length of your thumb and forefinger spread apart, and is the ideal size of chopsticks determined in the Edo period. Over 300 years since then, our average height has grown, and the size of desks and chairs have gotten taller, but the mainstream size of chopsticks we use every day is still 22 to 24 cm, which is still the same as the Edo era. Therefore, we came up with a size of 26cm, which is ``one and a half for modern people'' as a size that could become the standard for chopsticks in the future. By hand-shaving each piece of Moso bamboo, a unique and flexible material , we are able to achieve both beauty when eaten with the ultra-fine tip of the chopsticks, and the strength to withstand it. .
3. Beautiful design for others to use
The third thing is that it is beautiful when people use it.
No matter what kind of chopsticks you use, the moment you remove the fish cleanly and try to taste it, it disappears from sight. We cannot see the mouths that we eat. STIIK is designed to be easy for you to use, but it is also designed to make it look beautiful when someone else uses it. You don't want people to stare at you while you eat, but just seeing someone eating beautifully can make the meal taste better. That's the reason behind the two servings in one package. Chopsticks are designed to be enjoyed not only by one's own taste, but also by sight, so that they can be used with others .
Chopsticks are one of the most important items at the dining table. If you make a conscious choice, your diet will drastically change from that day onwards, and it has such an impact.
Lastly, I am actually the creator and project producer of STIIK. So what? That's what it feels like lol. I've put my recent thoughts and behind-the-scenes stories into a letter called oh page, which I put inside the package, so I'd be happy if you could read it.
