The blind furniture market has just been given a big shot in the arm thanks to the Moon Table. The Moon Table is a dinner table designed to make mealtime easier for the blind and sight-impaired.
You may have noticed that the Moon Table has etched-in patterns on its top. These etched-in lines act as a sort of rotational axis for food. They make passing food to someone easier by giving the plate a predetermined path of travel.
As far as I know, the blind furniture market isn't a big one. Designs like the Moon Table could really break new ground in terms of furniture designed specifically for the blind and sight-impaired.
