East and West / Spoon and Chopsticks

East and West

I propose a new design of ‘East and West’ that functions both chopsticks and forks. When two chopsticks are fused, it becomes a fork for eating fruits and steak. By
separating this fork into two sticks, it can be used as a pair of chopsticks while eating sushi or noodles. Each stick has either a concave side or a convex side on its upper part so that it can be easily assembled.
With this ‘East and West’, it enables people to comfortably have Eastern and Western foods in the globalized era.
