TAPO

dynamic plates, 2018

  at Weißensee Kunsthochschule, Berlin

Tapo plates are based on the way we eat. Concentrating on the action of eating and the functionality that is needed for specific dishes. This small plates for small dishes suggest an awareness and playful way of eating. I was encouraged by looking at people when they are eating; how much they are aware of the situation and to the way they need to move? I wanted to reflect those actions to the actual plate by designing the different movement. The evolving technology of multi-material printed objects enables the idea of this plates. Every plate has a different grid that is streamed from the movement of eating a specific dish. Simple geometric shape and lines from a gradient of flexible to a hard material, that determines the movement of the plate. 

How do we move when we eat?
