Loophole Tongs

3 3/4”W x 10⅔”L
It has been said that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. We agree. And that’s why we were delighted to connect the masterfully reductionist London-based designer David Weatherhead with Chris Mroz, a Washington-based inventor and published research scientist, who has developed a proprietary Extreme Wood Bending™ process. This is the first use of the EWB process for product design and it comes in the form of our commission of David Weatherhead’s supremely simple and useful Loophole Tongs. Perfect for anything from salad to cold cuts, from toast to steamed vegetables. One seamless piece of carefully selected North American hardwood, elegantly shaped and loaded with the natural “elastic potential energy” made possible by Chris’s process. Designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind, the tongs have a pedigree and presence that make them feel inevitable in any setting.
