This design exhibition on sustainable food experience at "Årets Kock 2014" competition is produced by Konstfack's 3rd year industrial design students including many exchange students from international schools around the world. The exhibition takes place on Febuary 7th 2014 at 9:00-16:00, Stockholm Waterfront, Nils Ericsons Plan 4, Stockholm, Sweden.
The ethnic diversity of the participants was strongly supported, encouraging each design team to translate, mix & shape their culturally rooted food experiences into a creative design solution.
This exhibition shows the results of a collective design process, set 10-20 years in the future. It pivots around exploring new ways of collecting, creating, preparing and sharing a new food experience by merge sustainability & aesthetics.
The course aim was to:
- integrate a sustainable perspective with an aesthetic perspective where smell and taste are in focus
- deal with a future-oriented design process
- share cultural differences and similarities
- explore new ways to make and serve food
- engage the community in a sustainabile food experience
Throughout the course we engaged artists & designers, who shared their knowledge & experience from performance arts, wine tasting, industrial design & culinary arts.
