Tapas are not only delicious appetizers but also self-sufficient art objects – it is confirmed by the curators of the exhibition «Tapas. Spanish food design», opened on March 8th at the Museum of Design of Barcelona.
Guests of the exposition will see how the relationship between Spanish and Catalan design and cuisine developed over the past 25 years. More than 250 different exhibits: from the unique creations of the famous chef Ferran Adria and his colleague industrial designer Luke Huber to objects of everyday life – jugs, pots, containers for food. Honorable place at the stand will take a decanter for olive oil, designed by architect and designer Rafael Markin in 1961; it caused a universal delight as in addition to its beautiful appearance it was amazingly practical in use. All this, accompanied by thematic photos and videos will show the public how closely intertwine the worlds of food, history, architecture, interior design and others.
Also, it will be possible to attend three debate sessions with leading chefs and designers who worked on common projects. They will explain the close correlation between gastronomy and graphics, and will also talk about the role of design trends in modern high cuisine.
