Yes, I like to have some stimulating tableware along with stimulating discussions – and these definitely make for some sort of discussion – , especially after a bottle of red wine. Who doesn’t. Although, quite frankly, normally I don’t really eat from tableware that feels like tongue kissing a baby toy. It’s intriguing though, .. as much as confusing and scary. Very tempted to get me some and stare at them instead of staring into my fridge ( which happens on occasions). Any other takers / try-ers?
“The project was inspired by the phenomenon of synesthesia, a neurological condition in which stimuli like taste, colour and hearing are affected and triggered by each other. People with synesthesia often report seeing a certain colour when they hear a particular word, for example.”
