Tangible Tableware / Tableware

Tangible Tableware

It's quite difficult for the blind to search for exact tableware such as knives, spoons, and forks when they are having Western food, and during the search, they may touch heads of the set tableware, which may cause the tableware to be contaminated.
Tangible Tableware" aims to solve this problem. There is a small abstract shape of the tableware on the bottom of the handle. For example, a knife for the blind has an abstract shape of knife attached to the bottom of its handle. With this set of tableware, blind people can find what they need easily by touching the bottoms. Therefore the blind always eats in a clean and healthy way.
