Eating Off The Floor

We've all done it: eating in front of a movie marathon on the couch, or dinner in bed on a rainy evening. It's OK...you've had a hard week. We understand.

Instead of balancing a foam take-out container on your knee in front of the TV, our Ooma Bowl will transform your couch dining experience. Its dual chambers are specially designed to keep food separate, so you can enjoy your chips and salsa or rice and curry without any unintentional mixing. Plus, the ergonomically designed bowl balances when held in one hand, and keeps your wrist in a comfortable, neutral position! Here's to eating on the floor...and the couch...and the recliner...

“Get engaged and excited about how people do things and pay attention, then work your way to a product idea you're excited about and other people love.”

Captivated by human-centered design, beautiful objects, simplicity, and details, Thomas Both’s advice for aspiring artists and designers is simple: Make stuff. “Get engaged and excited about how people do things and pay attention,” he says, “then work your way to a product idea you’re excited about and other people love.”


 After working for a few years as a mechanical engineer right out of college, Thomas felt the need to feed his right brain, and so he enrolled in design school at Stanford University and went on to teach at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. When creating his ceramic pieces, no functional detail is left untested. “I work much more as a designer now than an engineer,” he says, “but both play a part.”

              I really liked the idea of this dish when I saw it in the catalog, but it is just too expensive. I'd like to have a set of them in different colors, but $100 for a set of 4 (for example)--just too much for such an informal item.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Ooma Bowl:

                This is an attractive bowl. It would be great for soup & crackers, ice cream & cookies. But using it for chips and dips/salsa was maddening. Because one side of the dip bowl is curved inward, it is nearly impossible using a chip to scoop toward oneself. The curve allows but one contact point to scoop against. I am very disappointed - especially after an aggravating chips & salsa evening. Limited use - and don't expect to scoop!
