Spoons as an object hold a status as being extremely recognizable and readily associated with eating and tasting. A set of 7 spoons were manufactured to investigate the taste of inedible materials as part of Materials Library Founder, Zoe Laughlin’s PhD thesis. The spoon is a stainless steel teaspoon that has been electroplated with a layer of chrome  10 microns thick. Chrome is commonly found in many foods and in multivitamin food supplements. It is thought to be essential in the action of insulin and it is believed that a consumption of 10mg a day should cause no adverse effects. Chrome is also an element added into steel to form stainless steel.
