A night in can often result in dinner on the couch in front of the tube, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could be more mindful and appreciative of our food? Tany Jarus and Sagie Grunhaus are hoping to change the way people eat with a new intimate dining surface called Sati Tala. Translated from the Pali words for “a mindfulness surface,” Sati Tala consists of birch wood seats and a handheld, cushioned table that rests on each person’s knees. The table directly connects both parties during a meal and the act of balancing allows them to become more mindful with every bite. The purposeful design is now available on Kickstarter and can even be personalized with wood engraving. Cheers to that.
