Stylish Silver Flatware

So, I've been aching for a complete set of Christofle Flatware for as long as I can remember--that is, until I came across Greg Lynn's Art Nouveau inspired Sterling Silver Flatware prototypes for Alessi. According to Joseph Rosa, Curatorial Chair of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago, this flatware if the first example of liquid metal to be used in rapid prototyping. This computer aided designed set replicates a system of steam, leaf, and flowers that, together, form a single setting (or bouquet). Lovely! Brilliant! I believe they still may be in prototype, but as soon as they are in production, they're a snap up--and sure to become a permanent classic.
