These Runcible utensils are a set of kitchen equipment made from solid hard maple, a material traditionally used for this kind of product. The choice of items is driven by the idea to concentrate on the most essential and also versatile typologies that are related to preparing and serving food. Eventhough each single piece represents a familiar archetype, these are not limited to one specific task. They are rather blanks that stand for a type of application but allow for individual use. In this sense their attributes are depending on interpretation. Being confronted with the material of hardwood as a starting point, Mathias Hahn deliberately decided to work outside the furniture domain, focusing on kitchen products and their origins.
