FALT CUTLERY

Rethinking the folding process

 

Producing a cutlery takes a lot of steps. A metal sheet is cut out several times to get the desired shape. The parts are pressed, bent and finally finished. This results in high material wastes, high energy consumption and an extensive and therefore expensive production process.

By analyzing the manufacturing process, the steps are minimized and the process is simplified to a maximum. The three-piece cutlery consists of identical rectangular-shaped metal sheets. Cutting steps, production tools and waste material are reduced considerably. Every flat rectangular piece of stainless steel is brought to its final shape only by folding two edges. The folds stiffen the plate while ensuring a pleasant feel.
