Deep Food

Deep Food is an initiative by Cindy Chan and Heinrik Ng, which explores food design as a thought-provoking medium from an Asian perspective. Through creating various food design experiments ranging from tableware design, tasting events and tea gatherings, the team uses food as a medium to inspire discussion on a range of cultural and philosophical topics.

The Winner of the Future Food Design Awards

With a clear design backed up by thorough research, Adelaide Tam is the winner of this year’s Future Food Design Awards. Her project 0.9 Grams of Brass takes the only piece that is left over from the slaughter of a cow, the cartridge of the stun gun, and turns it into a mundane object, a paperclip. This paperclip costs exactly the same as the cartridge and leaves us wandering, what is the value of life within the meat industry? With her design she won the audience award, as well as the jury prize.
