Raised bowl / buffet bowl

Raised bowl

In buffet restaurants, people tend to pick more than they can eat which leads to food waste. The raised bowl provides a simple solution by making the center of the bowl convex, which can make visual "deception."
A bowl full of food on the surface makes people feel satisfied, which deceives the brain to reduce the actual eating.In addition, the slogan "Save food" is printed on the raised parts which reminds people that such raised design is to help people save food.
