Ever since Leela showed us her artful chopstick collection, with chopsticks from her travels displayed in a kitchen art installation, I have been really struck by the idea of showing off chopsticks in the kitchen! Here's another way to do it: A fabulous little chopstick holder from Vienna-based designers Less&More.
These chopstick holders are made by Leo and Hannah, a couple in Vienna. They make quite a few different sorts of organizers, actually: Glove holders, pen holders, simple and modern vases. We love pretty much everything in their shop! It's all a little on the splurge-y side, but each piece is handmade. The chopstick holders are made out of a single piece of ash wood and finished with 100% pure orange oil.
These could be a great way to show off pretty chopsticks from your travels. And what a nice centerpiece for a little apartment table!
