Animal Bones - Eating meat used to be a special experience, something celebratory. Something that only existed on special days and was valued accordingly. Today we eat meat at every opportunity, often without awareness, without pleasure. This has gigantic negative effects on our environment and also on our health, the details are easy to research. So how do we become aware of this? This kitchen knife handle is made from a cow bone. An animal by-product that doesn't always find an application. The knife creates a daily awareness of our food and beyond that of our behaviour, which always has an impact on the big picture.
Street litter - The herbal version is made from wooden slats found on the streets of Barcelona. Probably oak skirting boards, best quality and undamaged, packaged in plastic. 59 equal pieces that would make at least 100 knives. Similar questions arise here: How do we deal with our resources? Why is our respect for things linked to their current price? The wooden handle serves as a reminder that everything has value if you take a moment to find an application. 
The design of the knives is simple and ergonomic, the focus is on the materials. The implementation was done by hand to engage with the material and show respect.
