"LEVITATION" / conceptual tableware

The product is a special dish called “LEVITATION”. It was inspired by astronauts eating food in capsules. Food can float in the air. So I incorporated this idea into my design. This dish is shaped like a UFO or the lunar surface, and small holes in the dish, like lunar craters. It can blow the ball-shaped snack up to float in the air.

So imagine that in the future, when people are busy doing things, they will be able to simply open their mouths to eat food without using their hands.

Using this imagined product, wind like that expelled by a blower could blow food balls hanging in the air. This would be a fantastic experience for people.
