TANGIBLE SEASONING

Tangible Seasoning is part of a collection of sensorial vessels designed to bring attention back to food when eating. 

 

These shapes propose an alternative to standard crockery, transforming plates into sensorial vessels by adding tactile properties.

 

More importance is given to how artistic is the plating and little less about taste or food itself. An average of 608.948 pictures with #food hashtag is posted everyday on Instagram.

 

Eat with your hands first!

‘we eat with our eyes first’ but what about other senses?

 

This projects focuses to involve touch in the tasting process, designing a new dining experience (defined as ‘somatosensory dining’) by removing cutlery from the table and transforming the plate from a static canvas into a sensorial vessel capable to surprise expectation and to deliver great taste through tactile sensations, according to the chef plating.
