Jean-Pierre Zaugg - “The Giant Fork”

If you ever decide to travel to Switzerland and visit the Alimentarium, the world’s first food and nutrition museum off of Lake Geneva, created by Nestle, you’ll come across a giant fork that looks like it has been suck in the lake. Designed by Jean-Pierre Zaugg, the stainless steel fork is 26 feet high and was embedded in the lake in 1995 in celebration of the museum’s 10th anniversary. While the fork was originally just a temporary exhibit and moved to a garden outside of the Berndorf cutlery factory the following year, it eventually returned to the Alimentarium in 2007 for a cutlery exhibit, and a petition was started to keep the fork in the lake, which ended up being successful.
