Wabi-sabi: the art of seeing the beauty in the imperfections.

A ritual isn't necessarily a ceremony, but those actions we enjoy doing, those that have a personal meaning for us. Those that aren't about results but about the experience: sound, smell, environment... Designing for a ritual involves thinking about the whole and not about the distinct aspects. Everything has to contribute and be built around a core.

In this case, we focused on sharing and creating a feeling of belonging. The experience is contextualized around a table keeping in mind that eating together isn't  the same than sharing a meal. The way the plate is turned to present the topping, the movement of passing the plate with two hands giving importance to the action, the eye contact... All the objects subtly convey the message of  caring for each other.
