Design by Karl Zahn.
Designer Karl Zahn's minimalist designs seek to garner effortless function from basic form. With the set of six 'Scoop, Stab & Spread' appetizer tools, ingeniously simple functional tweaks convert the simply simple to the simply extraordinary. The solid and slotted Scoop can handle tidbits that may arrive in their own jus with an integrated draining slot. Stab includes one single pronged spear and one double-pronged fork ideal for skewering delicate meats. And Spread features an angled spreader and a straight spreader, making it a fit for hard or soft cheeses. The set is handcrafted from durable beech wood at family-owned and operated Bestar in Taiwan, and carefully scrutinized for quality.

Karl Zahn studied Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design with an emphasis on manufacturing and fabrication. Studying in Denmark in 2002 supported his love of handcraft and his own style reflects a danish modern sensibility. His work deals with materiality and explores the practical and emotional relationship we have with products in this increasingly complicated world that is driven by technology and fraught with environmental guilt.View other products by Karl Zahn
Teroforma was created in 2006 by Anna and Andrew Hellman, driven by a desire to meet interesting people, see new places and create beautiful things. What they quickly learned was that ensuring their standards for products meant rejecting the allure of mass production. And so, the team embarked on a search for hand-picked designers and true craftsmen who could produce their products with skill and integrity - a search that lead them all over the world . Ultimately their vision emerged of the "right way" to make things in a world of scarce resources. This was a "focus on the quality and integrity of the creative process and the people involved knowing that only then can the finished product ever be considered truly beautiful."
The team at Teroforma has built a very strong idea of the ways that products should be offered to customers - simply, honestly, transparently and with a dedication to quality. They believe that products should be made to outlast their owners. And Teroforma commits that it will always be honest and thoughtful, working hard to surprise and delight its customers with carefully crafted home tools and accents for dining and entertaining.View other products from Teroforma
