Meet The Makers

Crucial Detail - Chicago

Crucial Detail is the award-winning design studio founded by Martin Kastner. Working at the forefront of fine dining, in collaboration with the world's best chefs, Crucial Detail explores the synergy between food and design by creating objects, utensils, and tools that are as beautiful and unique as they are functional. Winners of a Global Innovation Award for Best Product Design and having been named one of the world's 100 most influential designers, Kastner and Crucial Design were instrumental as well in Team USA's silver finish at Bocuse d'Or, the world's most prestigious culinary competition. We are honored to represent Crucial Detail on Eatingtools.
