Join, by Konstantin Slawinski, is a set of utensils that can be assembled into a free standing dinner table sculpture. Where the hell were these during the 8 years of childhood I spent trying to stand my tableware up?

It was a frequent restaurant pastime, trying to slot the spoon and the knife through the fork's tongs so that the whole structure supported itself, and that goal was often an elusive one.

The difficulty, of course, is figuring out how to take them apart—let that help you work up an appetite. It looks like Join will be available soon—you can find a dealer on Konstantin Slawinski's site. [Konstantin Slawinksi via Core77]
