The chopsticks chop-pin by ‘side by side’ are the perfect product for all the people that cannot handle with Chinese chopsticks. Gone are the days when you had to make acrobatic finger movements to eat! The chop-pins also help the inexperienced fans of Asian food to eat without difficulties and, due to their funny design, they attract the attention.
Chris Koens, the designer who created these chopsticks, got his inspiration from simple common clothes-pegs. They consist of untreated maple wood, the spring is made of metal. The chopsticks have a length of 23 cm, by request also available as shorter versions, so that even children can discover the fun of Asian food.
The chopsticks chop-pin are produced in the Wendelstein Workshops in Rosenheim. For more than 25 years, these workshops have been offering workplaces for disabled people in Rosenheim and in nearby Raubing. In the “Kompass” workshop, mentally handicapped people are responsible for products like these chopsticks or the bread box by ‘side by side’.
