“I am creating storytelling tableware to humanize Israelis and Palestinians.”
What if you could scan objects in your kitchen and hear the voices of people you’ve never known? What if you could share something intimate with someone who is supposed to be your enemy, without even meeting? Hummbowls are storytelling tableware, co-designed and exchanged between people from the Middle East and inspired by common hummus rituals. In each bowl, someone’s dipping style and narrative is preserved and shared. You can use the bowl for whatever purpose – although really, the best use for it would be eating hummus.
