Studio Boir designs New Normal tableware for socially distant dining

Croatian studio Boir has designed a conceptual tableware collection for dining during the coronavirus pandemic, featuring a series of steel and stone objects that enable food sharing at a safe distance.

The tableware collection, called The New Normal, comprises five items, including a bread basket divided by a barrier and long spoons that enable couples to feed each other from a distance.

In designing the dining objects, Boir aimed to achieve a balance between “intimacy and safe distance” within the context of the coronavirus pandemic – often informally referred to as the “new normal”.
