Objects of daily use. We often no longer reflect on their essence, we tend to use them without realizing it; the gesture of bringing food to our mouth, to taste it, to nourish ourselves, the meaning of what we do prevails. For a Buddhist monk and for Zen philosophy, the ladle, the only tool for nourishing oneself and savoring food, is such an essential object not only for its simplicity but for the meaning that nourishing the body has, which is above all an entity spiritual.
The Itzel project was born from this. The beginning is to find the essence, the minimal lightness of the form, where its linearity represents the continuous research into the spirit of things. Each shape, as well as its different spoons, its different forks, indicate different ways of approaching food not only as a habit, but as the essence of what we perceive.
