/ San


Chopsticks were invented in China about 4,000 years ago.It has a round head and the tail end of the square.And it is gradually being accepted by all over the world.But that doesn't mean it's already perfect.

So,I designed it:"San"-a untraditional trilateral chopsticks.
It has three main points:

1.More stable:Replacing the traditional quadrangle with solid triangle, enhancing the stability

2.More economical:Smaller than the traditional chopsticks,The same wood can produce more chopsticks.And the same space can put more chopsticks.

3.Less waste:When cutting materials, Waste generated less than traditional chopsticks.
