TOWAY MAT / Tray mat

TOWAY MAT
TOWAY MAT

In a cafe, I was watching a couple and found an interesting situation - a girl using her smartphone, and a boy just tearing papers without talking to each other. They were just spending time uselessly in awkward situation. I wanted to solve their awkward situation by providing topics to talk about. Moreover, by changing the way a boy tearing papers, I wanted to make his useless behavior useful. These can be done by a new tray mat – TOWAY MAT. TOWAY MAT provides platforms for users to have more pleasant situation and environment. Benefits will be given to users by tearing, folding and fitting the tray mat.
