Get your hands dirty at this year’s Salone in Milan.
"By Hand" is a culinary experience resulting from the research of designer Giulia Soldati, who uses food as a tool to explore the relationship with our body, whilst trying to trigger new behaviors and question our beliefs.
With this project Giulia Soldati redefines the ritual of dining so that it is entirely served and consumed by hands. Being a wonderful tool for tactile perception, the hand becomes the protagonist of the culinary act, a primordial tool with which to rediscover the ingredients through a more authentic and immediate contact with what we eat.
The sense of touch allows us to perceive the consistency, structure and temperature of food even before it reaches the mouth, becoming a sensorial celebration of food and the act of eating. During the culinary experience new gestures are introduced: the hand guides and directs food, creating a choreography of sensory movements and stimuli.
