Nest Utensils represented a design innovation for Joseph Joseph in a saturated market of kitchen utensils. With a trend for smaller living spaces, Studio17 rethought how utensils, essential for everyday cooking, could be stored: saving space and making them easier to access.

The result is a product comprising of 5 core utensils, stacked together to form a single, sculptural object. A dedicated stand keeps the utensils away from the counter top, with discrete magnetic handles keeping the set nested tightly together, occupying the minimum of space on a counter top.

The 5 tools are those deemed essential for everyday cooking; a ladle, solid spoon, slotted spoon, spaghetti claw and turner. When the utensils are nested, the spectral colours immediately define each tool, making selection and re-assembly easy.

The teardrop-shaped heads fill the ladle when nested, providing a look and feel of stability. As the handles rise up, an increasing chamfer detail allows fingers to separate each tool.

That overall form balances the requirement of strength, ergonomics, performance and aesthetics. The differing tool heads are largely hidden by the turner at the front, allowing an unbroken silhouette.

Moulded from heat resistant glass-filled nylon, the set represents a cost effective yet durable set of utensils on an individual basis, but when assembled forms a visually striking addition to the counter top.

Since the launch in 2012, Nest Utensils has won a prestigious Red Dot Design award and is now sold in 82 countries worldwide.
