Designed by architect Naoki Terada, the 15.0% Ice Cream Spoon uses your body heat to slice through frozen ice cream.

Made of solid aluminum with thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK, these spoons eliminate the need to wait for your ice cream to get softer.

The result is a scooping experience that is effortless, satisfying, and fun.

Comes in three different styles, each inspired by an ice cream flavor:

• 01.vanilla has an egg-shaped tip

• 02.chocolate features an angular tip that allows easy reach to the corner of the ice cream cup

• 03.strawberry is ideal for drilling into your sorbet with its fork-shaped tip 

4.1" × 1" × 0.5"
