Design by David Mayhew.
By Design House Stockholm.
Inspired by whales diving beneath the ocean's surface, Whale Tongs are elegantly simple. Held together with a single magnet, these tongs easily separate for use as a salad set or cooking utensils. This feature also allows for quick clean up once the meal is complete. Created from bamboo, Whale Tongs are an indispensable part of the modern kitchen.
Whale Tongs won the Tasmanian Design Award in 2006 and David Mayhew donates a part of the profits to the Save the Whales Foundation.

Ocean voyager David Mayhew developed his love for the ocean as an officer in the British Merchant Navy. After his time in the Navy, he remained close to the ocean working as a deck officer, ship's captain, and a lighthouse keeper. Now living in Tasmania, Australia, Mayhew works as a carpenter and joiner using traditional tools and techniques. Drawing inspiration from the natural world around him, he crafts furniture and design objects from beautiful woods in his beach side workshop.View other products by David Mayhew
