After researching the connection between mindfulness and design, I found that by modifying the design and changing the way people use an object, I can create a mindful experience. This is how I designed Sati Tala – an eating surface for two, that engages you to be fully present while eating.

The name means “a mindfulness surface” in Pali, an ancient Buddhist language. The eating surface rests on your laps and physically connects you to each other. This leads you to an experience of attention and presence with your partner. Sati Tala transforms eating with your partner into a unique experience.
