Umami [new taste, tasty]
Table and table top items, 2014

In more and more homes, dinner is had in front of the TV, in the company of the computer or standing by the kitchen counter while talking on the phone. The sit-down meal, at the set table, appears to be losing both time and attention. This fact reflects the times we live in in many ways. Streamlining is central to our society. The meal thereby often means doing something else while you eat.

Through new, exciting physical objects I want to stimulate and encourage people to return to sitting down during meals. Through my own examinations and by drawing inspiration from other cultures, I want to create a place in the home that is inviting and which offers and reminds you of the meal as a moment unto itself.

I want to create a new, tasty dining experience.
