Choi Ji–eun, a culinary researcher, has collected Korean spoons throughout her life’s research. I designed a book for these spoons that organized them by scale and chronological order. The folded and unfolded form of the book followed the traditional Korean structure of a publication.

One might suggest that Koreans’ deep interest in culinary utensils is associated with its diverse and invested food culture, such as the varieties in soup. The flat spoon has been a splendid cooking tool used throughout Korean households; thus, the foundation of Korean cooking revolves around the use of spoons. Korean dishes are known to be extremely delicate and require a cautious and meticulous use of the spoon. Even the seemingly unuseful spoons, stumpy and broken, have a purpose in the Korean kitchen. (For example, the spoon replaces the knife as a potato peeler.)
