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.

“Lifting aroma from its secretive niche into the spotlight.”

Having just recently graduated from the Food Non Food Department of Design Academy Eindhoven, Alexandra Genis sees her work as critical food design - sometimes very critical. ‘If I look at food design today, I see a lot of direct problem-solving. Vegetarian meat, technologically enhanced cooking, design against obesity and recycling of food waste dominate the media when it comes to food. These are important tasks at hand, of course. However, it’s what the public demands to see and I am sceptical about that.’ Thus the work of Alexandra is often the exact opposite of what is officially stamped as desirable. For her graduation project ATOMA she has travelled a universe of aromatic molecules to shed light on the secretive world of flavour.
