In Plain English Giannini

The In Plain English range is designed for the verbally ‘uninspired’. It consists of a dinner plate, coffee cup and napkin: the dinner platehas twomessages onto which you can lay your cutlery when finished eating, the coffee cup features a pointer, which can be rotated towards a choice of messages on the saucer, whilst the napkin has two sides of images to choose from when placed on your lap. From life-changing statements to light hearted jokes, In Plain English allows the user to express a series of secret, possibly embarrassing thoughts to their partner by subtle movements of table top objects.

The proposal was part of a group project for Giannini, Italy’s second largest manufacturer of coffee cups. It is a bit of a self-reference as it toys with the idea of objects acting as vehicles for communication and expression.
