Dining in 2015: Din-Ink

Designboom competitions are so much fun. The theme of the latest was Dining in 2015 and it got 4843 entries from 98 countries. Din-ink, designed by andrea cingoli + paolo emilio bellisario + cristian cellini + francesca fontana from italy, was one of the three winners:

Turn your favourite office tool from your desk in a common cutlery...this is din-ink. A set of pen caps, including a fork-cap, a knife-cap and a spoon-cap, that replaces the normal pen cap during lunch time! All caps are made by annually renewable resources, like natural starch and fibres, to be 100% biodegradable and atoxic, warranting the best alimentary use. Dispensing each set in a compostable packaging the whole set is designed to respect the environment. Now give your office ballpoint pen a good excuse to be gnawed by your teeth: use them for din-ink." ::Din-ink
