Muddle: smelling spoons – 05/2015
Eating is a very accessible action but many people overlook the fact that taste is established by a combination of all the senses. This combination of human simplicity and neurological complexity excites me. It made me explore how I could achieve an enriched eating experience through a simple and usable product.
With muddle I created a new eating experience. Through research on sensory synesthesia (a neurological condition where senses are affected and triggered by others) I designed a spoon construction where I will influence the experience of taste through another sense: smell.
