IMBALANCE / chopsticks


In China, chopsticks are one of the most traditional tableware, which reflects the characteristics of the Chinese cuisine.

Chopsticks are used with chopstick holder. When people want to lay down their chopsticks, they could place them upon the chopstick holder in order to keep cleanliness.

However, chopsticks holder is only used for placing the chopsticks, so it seems to be a bit cumbersome. Furthemore, not only does it consume materials, but also it requires cleaning after the dining. Thus the use of chopsticks holder does not accord with
the Green theme in today's society.
