An interactive tableware series that reflects the philosophical concept of Yin & Yang through the play of balance - how the two energies oppose but keeps a constant changing balance between themselves to co-exist.
The soul of the whole collection
In our everyday life, an imbalance of these energies will increase susceptibility to sickness. We therefore need to consume food of an opposing energy to restore balance, and this approach is known as Yin-Yang Food Therapy from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Each ceramic piece is a manifestation of this principle. The organic process of mixing black and white porcelain results in unique creations that serve as a material metaphor for our bodies - we all have a unique blend of Yin & Yang energies that needs to be constantly rebalanced.
The small ceramic pieces are designed to be imbalanced to encourage interactions, and when placing them onto the wooden seesaw platter, the bowls will tilt up and down according to the weight of each bowl as well as the weight of the food that is being served on them. This interactive design prompts users to take control and adjust its balance.
Wooden platter available in black & wooden colour.
