Forked Up


I came across the UtiliTILE: Forked Up by Canadian design group Thout this morning and teetered back and forth between loving it and hating it, then loving it again, and now not sure. It's a pretty cool concept none the less, silverware storage as modern art. And doesn't it look like someone has been practicing their knife throwing skills? Each 2 ft. lacquered square tile stores 4 sets of 5 pieces of silver which are held in by magnets. You can get the UtiliTILE: Forked Up ($300) by clicking here.

Hmm. You'd need a lot of clearance around that.
