“The OCD Series is the culmination of my research into Obsessive Compulsive behaviour. For some people OCD is an extremely serious phycological disorder that greatly impedes the lives of those who suffer it. However, everyone to some extent displays signs of personal rituals, quirks and foibles.
In this collection i have created a series of works that reflect obsessive or ritualistic behaviour in relation to everyday objects.” (Mark Owens)

Food Stain Plates
Israeli Designer Ilan Sinai made this family of three sets of tableware that intends to make the eating process more active and include itself in the sensous experience of eating.
The set “senses” is all about the isolation of the senses.
The set “20-40-10 (%)” focusses on the degree of the diner´s activity with the tableware.
The third set “channels and drainages” encourages to mix flavoures and enforces combination.
Have a look on a video of Ilan Sinai to see how exactly this tableware works.
