Plus Minus Dining System

Managing food proportions can be a tough battle, but the Plus Minus (±) System by Soo Kwon helps keep things balanced and even adds a little humor to the often frustrating situation.

Both a simple and inexpensive solution, the Plus Minus (±) System is a series of stackable bowls and plates that allow the user the option of a regular or smaller-sized portion. Each etched with either a plus or minus sign, when the small portion dishes stack up they build a long and lean tower whereas when the regular portion stacks, the tower becomes short and fat. The irony is a clear reminder of how much we are consuming while helping us fight temptation.

The Plus Minus (±) System is still a prototype, but proves that managing our diets doesn't have to be a stressful experience.
