Living Gadgets”, a Project by Studio José de la O speculates about a near-future reality, where product designers are able to use genetically designed creatures the same way materials are used in objects today; toying with the idea of how a genetically modified creature, designed not only to fulfill an utilitarian role, but also to be disposable the same way as a cheap gadget, could change the concept of a living being.
The way we consume food is heavily influenced on the tools and objects we use. Size, color, and the usability of our eating artefacts can influence on creating consumption patterns that might cause over eating.
Inspired on the research by various behavioural psychologists, this project is an exploration of how product design might influence on eating patterns, through a collection of hypothetical objects that focuses on a specific eating disorder.
