Design one set of healthy tableware that brings users: one healthy pleasant serene dining; one happy pleasurable healthy diet. This MFA thesis design reason was out of my passion for tableware/housewares design and personal experiences of both surfeit and anorexia problems, although balanced healthy diet was also my experience. Moreover, it was also my researches and observations of modern diet problems that happen often. Therefore, my thesis goal was to design one set of tableware which can promote healthy and happy diet, generate peaceful and pleasurable dining atmosphere, and be helpful for users to move from unhealthy dining habits to healthy ones.
