FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
Grove Tongs take inspiration from the curved roots of the Mangrove Tree. The Mangrove is a small tree that grows in coastal saline or brackish water. Mangroves grow worldwide in the tropics and subtropics, mainly between latitudes 25° N and 25° S
The utensil head is innovative with pierced cut-outs within the form of the head, these cut-outs allow foodstuff to be gripped internally, with a gentler cupping of the food so as not to damage the food. This has eliminated the historical serrated teeth that are frequently used in tongs.
Grove Tongs are designed with careful consideration to function and ergonomics for global hospitality. William designed the dynamic look of the tongs, to give the appearance of the tongs floating architecturally off the buffet counter surface.
