1002 Spoons

In addition to a collection of rocks, Tokyo-based German fashion designer Jurgen Lehl also collects spoons! 1002 spoons, to be exact, will be on display at Jurgen Lehl’s Babaghuri shop in Tokyo, where the show will run from November 27 to December 7 before embarking on a tour to other Jurgen Lehl outposts across Japan.

  1. Wow, most of those spoons appear to be wooden. What a striking and unusual collection.

    I know, right?
    I believe some of these were made specifically for the exhibit while the majority were collected during travels through South East Asia.

    I’m not sure if any are Welsh love spoons…
    But thanks for sharing. That’s so interesting! It’s amazing what you can learn about a culture just from a mundane object such as a spoon.
