Anti-Loneliness Ramen Bowl Ramen Bowl by Daisuke Nagatomo & Minnie Jan

Home > Winners > #30761


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Anti-Loneliness Ramen Bowl

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Ramen Bowl

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration came from the image of a lonely guy eating noodle at a restaurant, with chopsticks on one hand, and cell phone on the other. He could be prescribed as IDS (Iphone Detachment Syndrome), but for some people, that is absolutely the most normal thing to do – stay connected to the world. A phone gives a purpose to the user, and brings the lonely guy to an undisturbed, secured bubble. MisoSoupDesign sees the problem of needing a third hand while eating. The design is to “restore” the proper table manner while eating ramen (of course, in a very sarcastic way). Now, you have both hands free to use chopsticks and a spoon.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The double layered ceramic bowl can keep the hot soup nice and warm, and it won’t be too hot to hold.
