democratic tableware

Communication and collective decision makings often takes place on tables. The main source of decision makings is language. Normally the body is not considered to be part of the process. According to the principles of the embodiment the body has an essential influence on cognitive behavior.

Therfore we develope samall objects (tableware) to enrich communication by integrating the body in the discussion.

We visualize the shape of abstract contents and we embody the process of decision makings.
