INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the rolling mountains in southern part of China. Aim to design a project that extends the meaning of "mountain" both from aesthetic and functional aspects.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Mmm is abstract from the smooth lines and shapes that will bring people joyful mood. In Mmm, there is a raised hill which could divide your plate into two parts, and you can put different kinds of food in it in order to make the taste more pure as they won't interrupt each other. The vivid edges of Mmm looks smart and it's designed to match our people's hands maximumly. Also, Mmm looks really like groups of mountains and hills while standing in the shelf.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Mmm is supposed to be used at high level dinner reception to show the premium aesthetic of host/hostess as they refract groups of mountains and hills in southern part of China. The biggest one is suggested to be put main dish like steak, pork and lamb chop while Asians have rice,beans or so. The middle is for fruit salad, sea food or green vegetables. And the smallest size is a wise choice used as dessert like fritter, trifle, cocoa puff and pudding placement. All of them is designed for splendid dining experience.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2015 in Zhengzhou University of Light Industry and finished in February 2016.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We have simplify the types of dishes which can reduce classification works back in the kitchen.We have also studied that by improving bevellings at the bottom edges makes dishes be washed better in the dish-washing-machine.To define the key dimensions we have tested the width and length that can well fit for foods.

CHALLENGE:
What we want to design is that a series of tableware both perfect in matching our hands shape and in fancy appearance. Mmm is our first experience and results of our research. We want to create a kind of tableware that looks also very good and catch people's eyes while we are not using them.
