Stimulated Dining

Adding excitement to the ordinary, oddly shaped cuisine provides visual delight

Implications - With ordinary routines often featuring a plethora of repetitive actions, consumers are commonly left feeling apathetic toward their everyday experiences. As a method to add more depth and excitement to their lifestyle, consumers are looking to more stimulating sources of consumption to help augment the ordinary. Re-shaped cuisine offers consumers a sense of play and intrigue that makes the dining experience more visually engaging, reflecting the need for enhancements that provoke bolder responses.
