Looking at how people use salad bowls and servers, we noticed that often the salad is passed around the table so people can help themselves. With standard servers, it requires people to hold the bowl, so the person sitting next to them can use both hands to serve the salad. The advantage of tongs is that you can hold the bowl with one hand and serve the salad with the other. Having said this, there is a nice social interaction of the person sitting next to you holding the salad bowl for you, so we wanted to keep the option of traditional servers. We wanted a minimal solution that worked in both formats and took advantage of the bamboo to create the living hinge. We made many different models of the servers, to work out the best way they can slot together to form tongs.
