Apparently, Thailand has the second-highest obesity rate in south-east Asia, and so the Thai Health Promotion Foundation enlisted BBDO Bangkok to help them think up a new way of trimming its population down.
But instead of trying to change the way Thai people cook, they thought it better to just trim the fat from the food in the stage between plating up and chowing down.
Some clever thinking and crafty creatives resulted in the“AbsorbPlate”, which according to AdWeek, is basically a plate that features 500 perforations that draw out some of the grease from your meal. They claim it will capture seven millilitres of oil, which isn’t a great deal, but manages to shave off around 30 calories.
The design surface takes inspiration from the surface of a sponge, with the little perforations sucking out around a teaspoon and a half of grease.
