This is the product designers for a social cause:  It is pro-bono work that the product design community is doing to help the Down Syndrome Foundation rise funds for their operations in Portugal.

 

The Amiba is an ordinary plate that went through a hypothetical random accident and bumped and blended to another in the production line, just like the asymmetrical chromosomal disorder with Down syndrome carriers dictates they’re entire life: these are people with differences and that is the difference.

Inspired by this genetic condition, the Amiba design shows an asymmetrical status and that’s also the plus, as the volume capacity almost double.  That is the difference and its uniqueness.
