Appetite for Design features the work of leading Irish and international designers, cooks and restaurateurs, documenting, discussing and speculating about the design of food and our experience of it.
Food is no longer merely about the simple act of eating or the pure experience of smell and taste. New trends and materials have led to unique opportunities for the designers of today to enhance and elevate the culinary experience by speaking to our minds as well as our stomachs, engaging all our senses in a holistic culinary experience.
The exhibition showcases examples of the aesthetics, promotion, communication and representation of food, along with the equipment and tools used to prepare and consume it. Featuring work from Bompas & Parr, Martí Guixé, Marije Vogelzang, Chapter One, Loam, Forest Avenue, The Pig's Ear, Makers & Brothers, Fingal Ferguson, Superfolk, Design Partners, The Decorators, The Domestic Godless, Designgoat, O’Hagan Design and more. Curated by Designgoat, the exhibition explores the very best of food design, building on the increasing global recognition of outstanding Irish produce from coast to coast, and seabed to soil.
