Don’t eat with your hands! Never speak with your mouth full. And use that napkin! We know the rules. These instruments break them. Say goodbye to fork, knife and spoon and have feral table experiences!
Can everyday objects connect us with other species?
We use many objects every day. They are so well designed that we hardly notice them – except when they don’t work as expected. This makes them powerful leverage points to interrupt us, to make us wonder, think – and smile. The primary aim of Design for debate projects like this one is not to create another useful object. It is to inspire conversations.
