Part 2: Designing the Future of Clean Meat

Protein Fantasy is a food design fiction that suggests a different way of looking at the “natural” process of culturing meat and pushing the possibilities of producing food. It also visualizes a possible living context and new foods in the future, with the research on “clean meat”. Protein Fantasy is also designed to question industrialized food systems across the world today that prioritize high volume, low cost, unsustainable practices, and a lack of design diversity.

Reinhard Hunger is one of the most influential German food photographers. Modern food photography is today's witness of food culture and trends, just like painting used to be.

Beyond Taste

Teresa Berger is a young product designer based in Vienna, Austria. She aims at improving products and believes they can enhance our everyday lives, if they are well designed. She sees food as one of humankind’s greatest pleasures but also biggest struggles, as eating is heavily influenced by external elements of consumption through the tools and objects we use. “Size, color, and the usability have a tremendous influence on creating consumption patterns that might lead to negative eating habits. This is where I felt I could really make change as a product designer.” We talked to Teresa about her work around food and design and her upcoming exhibition at the Vienna Design Week.
