another useless invention 3

From designboom's dining in 2015 competition. One of their winners.

name of design : din-ink
design by : andrea cingoli + paolo emilio bellisario + cristian cellini + francesca fontana from italy

designer's own words:
Turn your favourite office tool from your desk in a common cutlery...this is din-ink. A set of pen caps, including a fork-cap, a knife-cap and a spoon-cap, that replaces the normal pen cap during lunch time! All caps are made by annually renewable resources, like natural starch and fibres, to be 100% biodegradable and atoxic, warranting the best alimentary use. Dispensing each set in a compostable packaging the whole set is designed to respect the environment. Now give your office ballpoint pen a good excuse to be gnawed by your teeth: use them for din-ink.
Do people still use those Bic pens? If not, they would need to keep three spare Bic pens in order to use din-ink. Why not just keep cutlery at work? I do.

I watched more episodes of Angel, and the last three most recent episodes of Smallville from here.
