Called Hang Around, the cooking tools have a groove in the back so they can balance on the edge of pans and bowls.

Muuto’s new cooking set and salad servers combine form, function and craftsmanship. The elegant wooden tools are precisely designed and crafted for a sleek modern look and improved functionality.

The innovative extrusion cut in the back of the cooking set HANG AROUND lets you work freely in the kitchen, while your utensils hang out on your pots or pans. TOSS AROUND, the salad servers, tell the same story of craftsmanship, materials and processes used for centuries. But in Muuto and KiBiSi’s interpretation, the wooden tools have an essential contemporary look and functional ergonomics.

These are the first Muuto products by KiBiSi - a Copenhagen based idea-driven industrial design firm founded by Kilo Design / Lars Holme Larsen, BIG Architects / Bjarke Ingels and Skibsted Ideation / Jens Martin Skibsted. The recently founded design studio has numerous International awards between them and we are proud to add them to Muuto’s team of leading Scandinavian designers.

KiBiSi partner Jens Martin Skibsted explains the idea behind Hang Around and Toss Around: “We were originally inspired by Bhutanese crafts. Their wooden everyday tools seem to have layers of stories and thoughts. We combined that with our Scandinavian design heritage and our idea-lead, no fluff design philosophy - and this little invention was bread. ”

MUUTO is a Scandinavian design company that joins forces with the leading contemporary Scandinavian designers to create original products with new perspectives. The result is an innovative collection of Scandinavian furniture, lamps and accessories for modern homes all over the world.

    Surely the thicknesses of bowls, pans etc variate so how can this balance on all dishes ?

    • brandon

      maybe it's just a fulcrum point?

  • function buffer

    The shapes look like student work. Not smart simple but overthought designblog simple.
