This fork was designed for a competition set by pasta company Barilla.
The trident form was chosen to solve the problem, especially apparent with penne, of the pasta slipping from the fork once pierced. By adding spear-shaped tines, the elasticity of the pasta helps keep it on the fork.
The lines of the fork make no attempt at a re-styling of the archetypal form, trying instead to embody it.
