neora zigler: sento tactile cookware

‘sento tactile cookware’ by neora zigler

‘sento tactile cookware’, israeli student neora zigler‘s final project in hadassah college’s inclusive industrial design department, is a set of cooking utensils for the blind and sight impaired. the cooking utensils encourage a cooking experience that takes advantage of all the senses, and answers the practical needs of the blind and sight impaired.

two points were emphasized in the creation of the set: first, to create a set of safe-to-use cooking utensils that will assist the blind in basic cooking; and second, to intensify the sensual cooking experience (smell, taste and feel) for all users, even those without sight impairments. ‘sento tactile cookware’ solves day-to-day problems such as fire and heat hazards, measuring and quantifying accurately, and having a clean and organized working environment in the kitchen, thus responding to the entire population’s needs not just those of the blind.
