Utensil is a Cologne based shop for products that originally stem from the industry, craft or public space. In collaboration with international designers the Utensil develops its own collection. According to the shop‘s philosophy, products which come up with a special material or functionality are changed in such a way that they are usable in everyday life. The created objects feature a new usability and purposely communicate their origin. After the exhibition, the objects will be sold as UTENSIL KOLLEKTION. Participating designers are: Eric Degenhardt, Isabel Hamm, Hrafnkell Birgisson, Halfmann Mennickheim, Isabel Bürgin, Frackenpohl Poulheim, Dreikant and Joachim Lindenbeck.
