At this year's Milan Furniture Fair, designers showed us that food is more than just a great source of vitamins and minerals, but an inspiring and fantastic medium for innovative industrial designs. Padiglione Italia invited 17 designers to explore food materials, and they presented their work at the Foodmade exhibition at Ventura Lambrate during the Salone del Mobile.
Uovodesign  used chocolate as a raw material to create objects. They made a range of cookie jars with fragrant chocolate lids.
Antonio Arico  has taken the concept of food as a raw material right back to the source. He made garden furniture of olive wood, inviting guests to polish the wood with an olive oil he also encouraged them to taste. The project is called Taste of Wood .
Alhambretto  used food to explore a chemical process. By mixing salt, vinegar, ammonia and tartar cream, they created a commonly used taste enhancer. The surface of the copper Patina  bowl oxidizes in the process.
