Eating With Benefeat

Eating With Benefeat

Benefeat looks like any regular tableware, but is specifically designed to eliminate the social stigma related to adults with cerebral palsy and when they dine with others. Five dinnerware have been designed for this, the first is bowl with an inclined inner base, the second is a plate that is inclined above a flat base, next is a cup with a straw insert, the fourth is a spoon with an adjusted angle and finally an anti-slip placemat.

Cutting Edge Cutlery

Cutting Edge Cutlery

Named “Edge” for their single edge design, this cutlery set is produced with a hot stamp which makes it possible to remove the slice present in cold working. This cleaner shape further defines the archetypical silhouette of industrial flatware. As simple as it gets, they’re perfect for any dinner table, formal or casual.

Totem Part Two

Totem Part Two

A new twist to the old Stackable Cup, this new Tilt Cup has a clipped edge that enhances drying. When you place the glass upside down, the water trickles and drains out through the gap created by the clipped edge. The tilted angle also enhances the weight balance so the cup can stand up by itself when overturned. I think this will work!

Salt Shaker With A Difference

Salt Shaker With A Difference

Most of us are guilty of sprinkling generous amounts of salt over our food, especially when we have intake restrictions. Mamma is a saltshaker with a difference. It has an integrated spoon-like lip with markings that lets you know how much salt you are going to sprinkle on the food. The main aim of this project is to reduce the intake of salt. The video explains it how…

Subtle Sensory Feedback Through Food

Subtle Sensory Feedback Through Food

The Double Contrast Glass, Jug, Hob Guard, Plate B, Mug, Cutlery and Chopping Board with Chopping Knife are all a part of the Leaven Range of Cutlery And Kitchen Tools for a person who is suffering from partial or full sight loss. Essentially the range is very interactive and with subtle hints and indentations is able to provide sensory feedback to the user. With the intention of making the dining experience more confident and fulfilling, I think designer Simon Kinneir has addressed and resolved quite a few key issues.

This Cup Has A Ring To It

This Cup Has A Ring To It

In an attempt to make life simpler for those with sight disabilities, designer Soon-sik Choi offers an effortless solution to the task of filling a cup. When the cup is almost full the handle makes a distinct ‘ring’ sound. The audio cue of the Xylophone Cup is a good enough warning for the user to know that the cup is almost to the brim and to stop pouring more liquid.

The Tea Cup SlingsHOT

The Tea Cup SlingsHOT

I never realized that dealing with a tea bag was so frustrating! Admittedly, I’m also more of a coffee drinker… but I can still see why the SlingsHOT Tea Cup is appealing. The slit in the handle keeps the tag from falling in and allows the user to squeeze the liquid out of the soaked bag simply by pulling back as you would a slingshot. Just be careful not to pop yourself in the eye!

Clever Cutlery

Clever Cutlery

It’s a sporkife! No wait… a knoork??  Whatever it is, this curious-looking cutlery design was created with respect to the logical order in which people might eat their food. The hybrid spoon/knife/fork is first used as a spoon to consume side dishes before being broken at the perforation to form a separate knife and fork for cutting protein items. While the disposable object is still made of plastic, it generates less waste than other plastic cutlery sets.

Inspirational Tableware

Inspirational Tableware

In a world of fast food and quick meals, it’s easy to lose sight of the age-old tradition of family time over dinner. Purpose Plates are a clever reminder of this valuable experience and aim to bring us back together by introducing a playful game written directly on the dishes. Point the arrow of the top plate at the person you want to talk to and match it with the phrases of the bottom plate to create conversation-starting sentences. It’s an educational and playful way to get families talking again!

Musical Dinner

Musical Dinner

Imagine a future where food is inspired by music. I am talking about the SmartPlate, a dish that understands food and transforms it into sound. As described by Julian, it completes the circle of senses by which we understand what we eat. The plate hookes up wirelessly to your mobile device, and then by measuring the different aspects of your ingredients, it identifies food. It then precisely attaches musical notes, harmonies and rhythm to each ingredient.

Yes, You May Play at the Table!

Yes, You May Play at the Table!

The Attention! cutlery set takes it’s name from the upright position of the knife, spoon and fork trio when placed in the space-saving dock. The clever design utilizes magnets to bond groups of utensils together, making them easy to set and ensuring that strays don’t go missing. It’s a playful conversation starter that dinner guests will love!
