Bic Dining — Episode 2: The Designers


Episode 1 yesterday occasioned no small interest, including numerous inquiries by readers as to where they could buy these wonderful accessories.

I hadn't a clue how to respond until reader Carol emailed me last night with the news that the devices, collectively called "Din-ink" — by Italian designers Andrea Cingoli, Paulo Emilio Bellisario, Cristian Cellini and Francesca Fontana — were a winning entry in designboom's macef 2008 competition, "dining in 2015."

Thus, it would appear they're still a concept and not an actual mass manufactured product.

Consider that the accessories are made from corn and potato and spontaneously biodegrade in 180 days.

Sure hope it doesn't take 'em long to scale up....
