Art and Cook is a design group focused on "exploring the Zen of food preparation." They developed a technology for air-filled handles to their products that they say makes them lighter and more efficient, and they use other materials like zinc to make them long-lasting. They're after visual and sensual gratification in their kitchen tools, they say - and we must say that the tools above do look pretty nifty. From the left: Perforated Flipper, Masher, Citrus Reamer, Yolker, and Pizza Wheelie.

We haven't actually tried any of their very interesting looking tools - has anyone come across these?
