Chopstick Design / Tableware

Chopstick Design

The COVID-19 has drawn worldwide attention to the public health. In China, people are often like to share a dish together, instead of using knives or forks individually that could be resulted in sanitation issues. Currently, modern sanitary practice is to prepare a third pair of untouched public chopsticks. However, this can be resulted in taking multiple times of switching from chopsticks to chopsticks, making it less convenient. This innovative design offers a solution to this problem, a third pair of chopsticks are hidden in the integrate design, and it can be easily to switch through a press of button to avoid constant switches.
