The Shape of Flavours

Chinese food is known for its diverse ingredients and flavours. Based on guidelines from Traditional Chinese Medicine, ingredients are categorised according to 5 flavours to promote a balanced diet for good health.

About Wei!

Wei! is a tableware series that gives shape to intangible flavours of food. Each tableware in the series uses form and texture to visually showcase the flavour composition of an iconic dish.

This soup jar is modelled after the Teochew variant of Bak Kut Teh. Form and texture is used to visually express the flavour composition of this local specialty. Sweetness is represented by the ruffles ribbing on the surface, saltiness by the granular texturing, sourness by the twisting of the form, bitterness by the bumpiness and spicyness by the vertical spines.

Wei!’s concept has been supported by close collaboration and discussion with chefs and TCM professionals.
