Les anciens abattoirs de Madrid (Matadero) ont été reconvertis en immense lieu culturel avec des salles d'exposition, bibliothèque, ludothèque, cinémathèque, café... et offrent une programmation très trendy.
 
C'est dans ce cadre que l'exposition "Design Démocratique" a eu lieu.
Sponsorisée par IKEA, voici le mode d'emploi:
 
- 200 étudiants des écoles de design de Madrid
- Un cube
- 600 Euros en matériel IKEA pour le décorer
- Contrainte: le cube doit rester habitable
 
Voici la sélection des cubes ayant une décoration en rapport avec la nourriture.

I went to an outstanding exhibition about the history of Spanish food called "La Cocina en su Tinta," (The Kitchen in Ink) at Spain's national library (Biblioteca Nacional de España).

 

The exhibition starts with late-Gothic cookbooks and archaic cooking utensils, and brings us all the way up to recipes from the contemporary "stars"-chefs.

"Food Design" is an exhibit dedicated to the (freak!) culinary design.

 

The creations are presented on large tables, linked together by curious spatial pipes converging on a totem library (better to visit if you really want to understad the concept ...).

The proposed approach combines subtly artistic, industrial size, cultural issues, innovative objects. The exhibition is organized by Marc Bretillot, expert in culinary design, and involves young designers and students.

You will find: a pain au chocolat-shaped alters, a block of sticky edible roots multicolored, flavored butters ... and of course chocolate revisited, reinvented, re-explored, a vinyl disc of chocolate, crustaceans tattooed and Pierce, referring to different styles and fashions "human" grunge, gothic, punk ...
