Writing on Food & Design: “Food Futures”
In this new review series about publications that write about food and/or food and design, we have asked our international correspondents to share their most inspiring publications with us! The first to share her food and design reading recommendations is our Food & Experience correspondent Maud de Rohan Willner.
“Food Futures: Sensory Explorations in Food Design” by is a collection of food design work by various designers who explore sensory features within food & design.
“How much do our senses come into play with every bite we take?” asks Jinhyun Jeon, designer of Sensory Appetiser. By looking into the ways we consume food and exploring how to make it more of a sensory experience, Jinhyun created a series of individual tableware elements to wake up the senses in our mouth. One of my other favourite projects is Tomorrow’s Meatball by Space10. They’ve put together a series of speculative suggestions for the (not so distant) future meatball which we are actually already exploring: the Wonderful Waste Ball, the Mighty Powder Ball, the Urban Farmer’s Ball, the Nutty Ball, the Lean Green Algae Ball, the Crispy Bug Ball, the 3D Printed Ball and the Artificial Meat Ball. These are all future and current food trends looking for ways to be more sustainable.
