The Leaven Range by London-based designer Simon Kinneir is a set of everyday kitchen products, tuned to give extra sensory feedback beyond a reliance on sight. The design incorporates subtle changes to these products as we know them, improving the practicality and enjoyability of a task and reintroducing self-confidence in the kitchen for people with sight-loss. Whether through temperature, sound, or movement, these products amplify active processes in the task at hand.
The Leaven Range items include:
Kinneir’s work explores experience in spatial, communication and product design with a research specialism in design for sight loss and independent living.
