A unique and eye-catching piece of dining decor inspired by the global pandemic, taking the form of a Covid-19 test card.

The Ceramic C-19 Knife/Chopstick Rest is a unique piece of dining decor inspired by the global pandemic. This knife rest takes the form of a Covid-19 test card, and it is entirely made of ceramic.

The design of the knife rest mimics the look of a real test card, with its specific and recognizable shape. Unlike a real test card, this knife rest is both functional and beautiful.
Its smooth and curved surface provides a stable resting place for your cutlery, while its ceramic construction ensures durability and easy cleaning.

The C-19 Knife Rest is not only a functional accessory but also a statement piece that adds a touch of whimsy and humor to any dining configuration. Whether used for a formal dinner party or a casual family meal, it is sure to spark a conversation and make a lasting impression on your guests.

On top of its functionnal and aesthetic qualities, the C-19 Knife Rest can be seen as a makeshift amulet to ward off COVID-related bad luck and protect a household from future pandemics.

The C-19 Knife Rest is made in Brussels and was developed in the framework of the Mad Incubator. It was presented in Fuori Salone in Milan in the exhibition LOST/FOUND curated by the Gallery fake authentic .
