Non-stressor Spoon

By Nonoji Rakuten 

The spoon is thousands of years old, but that doesn’t mean it’s not ready for a design update. Nonoji’s Non-stressor Spoon (¥630-945Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

) is a new design which comes out a long research process into how we use cutlery. The designers used the approach of “Universal Design;” easy-to-use design for all people, including the elderly, disabled and young. The new design features an asymmetrical head so you don’t need to twist or turn the spoon as you eat with it, and a curved handle which fits naturally in your hand—there’s no hard lines or geometric shapes here!

The Non-stressor Spoon and other kitchen items are all made from high quality stainless steel and will also “improve the manor of eating at lunch,” according to the website.

Material: 18-8 Stainless Steel (18% chromium and 8% nickel, to give increased resistance to corrosion) with a high-level mirror finish
Types: Spoon, fork and rice spoon (normal and large)
