topoware.jpg
a tableware collection that questions the "landscape of dining". inspired by the popularity of geography & topographic maps as a media of visual communication. made up of cups, plates, bowls, place mats & a tablecloth, the collection explores the visual landscape of dining by using outlines & descriptions to illustrate the eating experience, making it feel like a journey.

These remind me of this topographic sink from Gore Design Co. from a few months back. You could complete the whole look across your entire house.

Great work, though I think it'd be more compelling if the topo lines actually reflected the topography of the flatware. What if the table cloth could respond to bending to show changes in topography?

I mean the topography of the ceramics, not the flatware. Apologies.

Thanks for posting this here!

> srmoon: you'll notice that the topographical lines actually denote different portions and their connotations on the tableware:
one says: very hungry, hungry, full
a second: dad, mom, child
so it's not only about the use of a geographical visual but what it means in the eating experience.
