In 1978 the ramen Fork was invented by Sugakiya, a ramen restaurant in Nagoya Japan. The ramen fork’s aim was to help diners to eat the noodle and soup at the same time as well as decrease the use of disposable wooden chopsticks.
For their 60th year anniversary, Sugakiya decided to update its ramen fork design and asked designer Masami Takahashi to help. It took a year for Mr. Takahashi to reach the final design which Sugakiya’s CEO Shinichi Sugaki displayed at a press conference. The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) was at the press conference and liked what they saw.
This artistic shape was highly admired by MoMA and was introduced to their museum gift shop. The museum says that the US$14 ramen fork is of the top 3 sellers within the gift shop.
