Tableware as Sensorial Stimuli by Jinhyun Jeon

This was an object design of tablewares that related to our Research topic about Making Sensory.

These tablewares focused on the question of "Can the shape, texture, and color of cutlery change the way food taste?"

The project was inspired by the phenomenon of synesthesia, a neurological condition in which stimuli like taste, color and hearing are effected and triggered by each other. People with synesthesia often report seeing a certain color when they hear a particular word, for example.

Jeon created cutlery based on five sensory elements: color, tactility, temperature, volume and weight, and form.

These tablewares even looks like they are going to a different experience of using them to taste foods that we had every day. And to a certain degree, it will increase people appetite because of the curiosity.
