Nicknamed “Sporks,” these spoon-and-forks are useful for hors d’oeuvres, picnics, or dining on-the-go. An example of the recent trend towards the inclusion of environmental responsibility as an important element of contemporary design, they are made of a 100% biodegradable corn-based plastic.
Giulio Iacchetti + Matteo Ragni
Giulio Iacchetti graduated from the architecture program at Politecnico di Milano and since 1992 has worked in the field of industrial design. In 2001 Moscardino, the multi use biodegradable utensil he designed along with Matteo Ragni, won the Compasso d’Oro and became part of the permanent design collection of Museum of Modern Art in New York. in 2009 the Triennale Design Museum in Milan held a solo show of his work entitled Giulio Iacchetti: Disobedient Objects.
Matteo Ragni graduated with a degree in Architecture from the Politecnico di Milano. As a child he was fascinated by the way things were made, so he took apart, rebuilt, and even reinvented new versions of household objects. in 2001 he was awarded the Compasso d’Oro for his unusual utensil, the
disposable and biodegradable moscardino spork, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Ragni is also a partner in the eyeglass company w-eye, where he designs hingeless, bentwood glasses handmade out of a variety of woods.
