INSPIRATION:
Elijah Robineau (10 years) contributed to the development of the product by describing and sketching the ideal tableware designed from the eyes of a child keeping "fantasy & playfulness". Alex Petunin the designer made sure that it remained functional while creating elegant wavy forms that would improve the eating experience. Inspiration came from the games that are found in most playground, each producing a unique interaction and experience for the child. The child now looks forward to dining!

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Nyx Kids tableware is a collaborative design between a talented designer and a 10 year old child name Elijah. As adults, we have learned to set limits and bounderies for the real world. Alex, the designer started to think and dream like a kid which resulted in aesthetic and playful tableware. The tableware offers a unique full custom design approach. Its user can choose its own pattern, color and shape, giving it a very special sense of belonging.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The tableware Nyx engages the child with innovation and allows him to interact with the product. The range has others designs which are also very playful.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
9 months and the project was realized between Russia and Dubai

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
In the creation process Alex made full use of the 21st century technology such as Cad modeling, parametric design and digital fabrication. (claytronics, nanotech) Melamine is used for the production which is a stable and inert material. It is non toxic and non-emitters of hazardous chemicals upon contact with hot and cold substances offering maximum freedom of expression in relation to the food being prepared.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design was to translate eating into a pleasurable experience for a child. We studied eating habits of children and Elijah shared his view and thoughts on what he would expect from a dining plate or bowl.

CHALLENGE:
The collaboration between child and designer was at time a challenge but allowed at times to go beyond the limits. It made what we would have thought impossible, possible and beautiful
