0908, Share.Food Tableware, 2013

A white ceramic bowl, cup, and plate each have a slanted bottom, making them tip one way or the other. The undersides are neon pink, casting a soft glow on a table. Designer Bilge Nur Saltik created this collection to highlight social interaction. Users seated across from one another tip the vessels toward their companion in a ritualized offering of food and drink.
