Covetable Cutlery

Spanish designers Clara del Portillo and Alejandro Selma entered this beautiful cutlery into the designboom.com competition entitled 'Beyond Silver' last year
This was the brief for the competition...in brief:
we are looking for functional and prestigious silverware with a new twist.
innovative, must-have, high-value home accessories, tableware, utensils- made of silver.
you are invited to participate with new designs, timeless gifts, new material combinations as silver & wood, stone, leather, plastic,... new production methods and glamorous new applications.
(sorry, fashion and jewelry items excluded!)
The designers' explanation:
The silver cutlery is a symbol of elegance and it has been used in banquets and important tables for several years. The sense of fashion and aesthetics has changed and most of these cutleries have been saved. Natural gives a new air to silver cutlery making it current and modern without giving up elegance. It has been sought a mixture of two noble materials; its merger with wood brings a warm air to the set. Natural also takes into account the new global mergers in the kitchen and includes utensils from different cultures
