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.

Ah, spoons to die for! Artist Tom Sale (aka “Pinky Diablo”) takes vintage sterling silver or silver-plated spoons and fashions skulls out of the bowl using a Dremel tool and buffing wheel. Me gustan! There’s a cool story on Tom’s spoons, which sell for $45 each, over at Dallas News Dot Com.
