These silicone plates designed by Royal College of Art graduate Lina Saleh wobble and jiggle to influence how diners experience their dinner.
Saleh, who designed the tableware as part of the Design Products masters, created each plate to influence the perception of taste. According to her research, our experience of taste begins before we even start eating.
The collection of plates includes bowls that pop inside out, bouncing domes, saucers that can be folded in the hand and dishes that tremble as food is eaten from them.
To design the plates, Saleh partnered with a chef, setting out to create responsive tableware that would tie to each recipe in some way. Saleh later broadened her remit, creating plates that could be used for a range of dishes.
“The project started by trying to create a dish for dessert that would convey the heaviness and richness of it, even before tasting it,” explained the designer.
