An elasticated egg cup, a fork that bends to pick up food and a glass tumbler with a cheeky bottom all feature in a collection of utensils by Royal College of Art graduate James Stoklund (+ slideshow).
Danish designer James Stoklund said he wanted to "challenge the traditional way we eat or pick up food but at the same time consider the food and its consistency in a playful way."
Stoklund's rubbery egg cup, named Fresh Eggs, has a white silicone surface that stretches to hold different sized eggs. They can be pushed into the holder from underneath through a hole in the elastic membrane.
Lick it Clean is a round plate that also features an elasticated surface and stretches when pressure is added, allowing the user to scoop up all the food.
Stoklund's curved fork has a flat surface and features eight long prongs that bend when pressure is added to pick up food from a normal plate.
An extra-long stainless steel spoon, called Extend the Pleasure, offers users a longer and bigger spoonful.
A glass tumblr, named Shake that Booty, appears to sit at an angle and rest on two bum cheeks.
Pour Thing is a white silicone milk jug that looks like a tea cup and forms a spout when the liquid is poured in one direction.
Stoklund, who graduated from London's Royal College of Art this summer, said that he wanted to challenge traditional tableware design.
"Everyone knows the feeling of having a spoon in their mouth or the sound of a fork against the plate," he said. "These are experiences we have known since we were born. However, most of us do not question the function of these everyday life utensils and what a simple change can do.
This film by Anglo-Dutch designers Studio Glithero explains the creation of Blueware Collection, a series of vases coated with photosensitive dye and decorated by attaching plants to the surface and exposing them to ultraviolet light.
The process, similar to the traditional blueprinting technique, turns the exposed areas of the vase blue while the parts protected by the plants remain white.
