Orion – Cookware for Visually Impaired

Advisor: Shapira Hadar

In recent years, cooking is considered a social and cultural leisure activity, and with this shift, the importance of accessible kitchenware has also increased. Orion is a kitchenware set that encourages the blind and vision impaired to cook by providing control, security and streamlining cooking times. The kitchen environment is challenging and sometimes even uncomfortable. The project developed a tactile and formal language incorporated in the kitchenware, focusing on user orientation between different objects, raw materials, and the surroundings. The kitchenware was designed to create a normative and non-differentiated accessibility.
