Jelly-like Living Plates tremble and bounce in response to food

Dezeen shared this video on Youtube!

These silicone plates designed by Royal College of Art graduate Lina Saleh wobble and jiggle to change the diner’s experience of different dishes.

Saleh, who designed the tableware as part of the Design Products BA, created each plate to influence the perception of taste which, according to her research, can be formed before even sitting down to eat.

The collection of plates includes bowls that pop inside out, bouncing domes, saucers that can be folded in the hand and dishes that tremble as food is eaten from them.

To design the plates, Salah partnered with a chef on a series of workshops, setting out to create responsive tableware that would tie to each recipe in some way. Saleh later broadened her remit, to create a series of plates that could be used for a range of courses.

“The project started by trying to create a dish for dessert that would convey the heaviness and richness of it, even before tasting it,” explained the designer.
