Sugar Skull Spoon
Dying for a coffee...?
A visually witty new product has just finished a very successful round of fund-raising on Kickstarter. Coming on like one of those dissolving spoons dipped in a seemingly innocuous cartoon cup of
coffee acid, the Sugar Skull Spoon from design team Hundred Million, has been cunningly designed to not only resemble a hazardous substance signifier but also be an extremely effective sucrose delivery system. And it will oh so sweetly remind you just how corrosive a spoonful of (un)refined sugar cane really is, every time you reach for a dose of the brown horse.
Each spoon is made from high-quality stainless steel, with a laser etched 'Hundred Million' logo subtly engraved into the back of the handle, drawing on inspiration from the Mexican Día de los Muertos Festival, gothic culture and Tim Burton. What a beautifully macabre way to make a very serious point.
As Mark Twain said "But death was sweet..." He didn't mention it'll also cost you 8 quid when it's available in Feb 2014.
