Mindlessly eating, too busy on our phones, or too rushed, we take food for granted every day. In an attempt to tackle this issue, we created a set menu focussed on typical easy foods and have designed these plates and bowls around the dishes. We have chosen to serve oatmeal and honey for breakfast, instant noodles for lunch and pasta with tomato sauce for dinner. Each dish has its own individual characteristics, matched to the food they hold. These unique adjustments to traditional crockery make the user slow down and focus on the food placed in front of them.
MindFull is a ceramic series of plates and bowls produced in 2017 designed by Rachael Kaye Mellor and Julia van Soest to help people to be more mindful of the food they eat.
