Each year, over 100,000 children in Asia are born with cleft conditions, birth defects that turn the simple act of eating into a challenging task. In order to raise awareness of the situation, Smile Asia wanted people to empathize with the struggle these children go through every day.
The Cleft Collection, a unique set of cutlery, was deliberately designed to change the way people eat so they can experience how difficult every meal is for children with cleft lip and palate. With the help of the Ritz-Carlton, the silverware was first unveiled at a dinner event. Unknowing guests were made to eat a four-course dinner with the collection, experiencing a small taste of the frustration children with the condition have to deal with at every meal.
