Eye On Design: Eatwell Assistive Tableware By Shao Yao

Red and Yellow Bowls

Color plays a powerful role in Eatwell Assistive Tableware (2015). Designer She Yao’s grandmother lived with Alzheimer’s disease. Her cognitive and sensory impairments caused her to eat less that she should. The Eatwell bowl uses the color blue, which does not appear in food, helping people with Alzheimer’s to distinguish food from the dish.

Yellow Place Setting

On the exteriors of the bowls, the colors red and yellow stimulate appetite. All pieces stand out from the table setting to enhance cognition.

On the way to Jonathan Levine Gallery for this past Saturday’s opening reception, I walked by Elizabeth Dee Gallery and was drawn inside by this stunning creation, which is called Coffee Table Museum, and was created by artist Joel Otterson in 1989. The mixed media installation / sculptures includes a natural wood plank coffee table adorned with perhaps a dozen coffee pots and coffee makers plus cups and what you might call coffee service accessories.

Here is the installation from another angle. I am just in love with this thing.
