Eat With Your Fingers // Kawamura Ganjavian

by mo on Saturday, April 9, 2011

If the experience or wonder that comes hand in hand with the idea of phantom limbs is to be inferred by design, I was thinking that it would bear form in some sort of design that plays with the user's perception of their body self. This set of cutlery by Kawamura is bears form as an extension of the body - without the user's fingers, it has no function at all. Moreover, it is a fun design that plays with the user's preconceived ideas about design and how it interacts with their body - which in the end, is an idea that my research so far points towards.
