The Pebble cutlery set was designed by studio Pentatonic in partnership with singer Pharrell Williams' creative brand I Am Other.
The kit comprises a knife, a fork, a spoon, a straw and a set of chopsticks that fold away inside a smooth case that can be easily carried.
But readers aren't impressed – one branded the set "marketing nonsense" whilst another was worried about "food getting stuck places" thanks to the cutlery not being made from a single material.
