Hop Design has designed the Font Cutlery Set in New South Wales, Australia.
This project is a cutlery set that uses design and technology to create a better, more inclusive dining experience for users with different abilities. Most cutlery sets for domestic use are 'one-size-fits-all' and have no provision for people with varying abilities.
Different levels of hand strength, dexterity and control can result from age, injury, arthritis and congenital issues, among other issues – to create a universal solution for this diversity is impossible.
"Cutlery solutions for people with disabilities can be orthopaedic looking and create a sense of 'other' when sitting next to regular cutlery," said Hop Design. "We aim to change that."
