For people who are visually impaired, having a meal can be a Herculean task. The design team experienced their dining conditions, and gained insight from their suggestions to design elegant tableware that enhances convenience for everyone. Tangibowls are based on the Asian dining culture, consisting of five bowls—one for rice, one for soup and three for sides. Magnets built inside keep the bowls stable on the tray; different textures help distinguish each bowl in an easier way. The bowls are easy to pick up and designed to help food slide into the mouth.
