As part of the programme around Global Irish Design Challenge exhibition at the Coach House, Dublin Castle, we present a series of design talks, in which two designers are invited to speak about their innovative projects connecting within a common theme. Design for Food brings together two angles on design for food: Lara Hanlon who created éntomo—a new food perspective and online resource that encourages learning about insects as a food source and Jordan Ralph Design who designed a bespoke presentation box for Tullamore D.E.W. Trilogy.
éntomo provides information about entomophagy, tips for cooking with insects, events and insights from around the world, to help adapt a lifestyle that is sustainable and nutritious. éntomo attempts to stimulate and promote change in sustainability: attempting to tackle some of the problems that western urban-centric societies face such as global warming and depleting land resources used for agricultural farming.
Tullamore D.E.W. Trilogy is a 15 year-old, triple distilled, small batch whiskey. This very special whiskey is matured in three different oak casks that have held bourbon, oloroso sherry and golden rum, to create a unique and complex flavour. The concept for this design was that it should be produced in small run batches, like the whiskey it would contain, and gifted to tastemakers worldwide.
