The 4th cutlery.


Japan, we live with crossover food culture.

From this context, STIIK was designed as
4th cutlery for all tables around the world. 


Food is one of the greatest pleasures of travel.
There are foods in the world that you’ve never seen before and
It’s full of dishes I’ve never tasted before.

We want to breathe life into these chopsticks,
which have a thick historical background.
We want to breathe life into these chopsticks,
not as a standardized tool, but because they are used every day.
Isn’t it good to find something new there?

WORLD FOOD LIMITED is a year color
inspired by foodstuffs from around the world.

Inspired by food and produce from around the world,
an annual limited color was born.

The annual color of 2021 is “yuzu”,
the aromatic citrusy fruit which is an integral ingredient in the Asian Kitchen.

The 4th cutlery

Japan, we live with crossover food culture. From this context, STIIK was designed as 4th cutlery for all tables around the world. Eating habits are changing in a rapid pace globally. More and more people are eating different foods apart from their own cuisine. It is more common to have Italian at home, Chinese for lunch and Sushi for dinner. Time has changed the way we eat and behave, which makes us more flexible in adapting to new food cultures. STIIK was designed to adapt to modern eating habits, making this the 4th cutlery to your dining experience.

“Modernized” 26cm

“Hito ata han”, literally means 1.5 times the length from a person’s thumb to an index finger “Hito” means one, “ata” is a traditional Japanese finger measurement, and “han” means half. It is considered to be the ideal chopstick length and was officially standardized during the Edo period (1604-1868). 300 years since, the length of chopsticks has unchanged from the 22-24cm, although Japanese average height has grown 10cm since then. For that reason, we have reached the conclusion that 26cm is a modernized “Hito ata han”.

STIIK is handmade from Japanese moso bamboo, which makes chopstick surprisingly thin but extremely durable. The unique balance between thinness and length comforts the pallet and creates a superb dining experience.
