Meaningful Food Studio
Fishes Fan by Amaryllis Hibon
Studio led by Francesca Zampollo, Jaz Bradley & Mah Rana
A collection of projects from the studio Meaningful food, where the focus is on Food Design, and in particular designing with food and designing for food.
This show collects work on Designing With Food and Designing For Food, the students’ two main projects. In both projects students were asked to start their design process from one of three wide pre-briefs: Helping the Earth, Helping the Body and Telling a Story. Within the Designing With Food project some students designed for the friends of Abbey Garden, a community garden for whom students designed products that members of the garden can produce themselves and sell at the market.
Within the Designing For Food project the BA students, besides designing a product following their own brief, also worked in group to design for Gaggenau, a live client who challenged students to design a mobile kitchen using Gaggenau appliances.
Between designing with and for food, students were also asked to reflect on the meaning of objects with a project called Meaningless Design: students were asked to redesign an already existing product as to take the original meaning out of that product, and replace with a different meaning. By giving a new meaning to a product, through manipulation of the product itself, students were challenged to create a new meaning for that product.
