Studio William is proud to announce it has won a Good Design Award 2016 awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. The award was given to Tilia Obsidian cutlery range.
Tilia Cutlery is designed as a beautiful transition between Eastern and Western cultures, Chopsticks meeting knives forks and spoons. The pattern is deliberately elongated and slender looking with beautiful 4.5mm gauge handles in the forks and spoons for refined weight and balance.
The edges of the handles are finished with delicate radii to ensure good ergonomics but still allowing for the flat handle sections to reflect simplistic modernism back to the user.
Black PVD Titanium Coating is a technology often used in association with engineering, milling and machining. Cutting tools are often coated in 10-25 microns of titanium to create super tough durability. The coating protects the steel and dramatically reduces wear and tear on the product.
The black titanium allows Tilia to obtain an aesthetic relationship towards Eastern Cultural use of beautiful lacquered (or Shellac) varnishes often used in wooden chopsticks and bowls. The black titanium is then off-set
against white dinnerware to make a stark and striking silhouette to help create a unique dining experience.
The flatware is dishwasher safe and can be used in domestic as well as commercial environments such as restaurants and hotels.
