FOODAM | Food Design & Art Museum is the ambitious project of FOODA creation to explore the communicative and technological possibilities of food across different contexts: artistic, scientific, social and gastronomic with the goal of promoting awareness in the design of ‘alimentary acts’.
The projects and events that make up the exhibition are aimed at assisting the public to imagine the food in the future, and the impact it will have on aesthetics, culture and the environment as an indivisible whole. It assists us in understanding that what is beautiful must also be good and sustainable. It allows us to assess our actions and our consumption from a perspective within an emotional and historic context
The welfare of both humankind and the environment depend on an understanding of the economic, social and cultural implications of the emerging field of food design. To obtain that well-being is the driving force behind design.
FOODA | Food Design Association was founded to promote understanding of those instruments which accompany the agro-alimentary dynamic in the industrial world. For over a century these factors have contributed to the birth and transformation of culinary culture, lifestyles and forms of socialization.
The design of ‘alimentary acts’ has a vast cultural and environmental impact, affecting not only the finished food industry, but also underlying processes in the production and distribution of food, as well as its aesthetic, moral and economic implications: the degree of popularity of a fizzy drink in Asia impacts on the cost of the oranges in Europe; the color selected for baby formula has an effect on the national health expenditure of a nation; the graphic layout of the label on food has an impact on CO2 emissions; the shape and taste of the apples we eat depends on the level of understanding and awareness of biological diversity. Our identity and the world which surrounds us depend on what we eat.
Pentole Agnelli is sponsor of FOODforFUTURE. Since 1907 Pentole Agnelli has built a reputation in Italy for its kitchen tools and utensils, aimed primarily at a professional public. Braising, stewing, frosting, baking, whisking or sauteing – over the last 100 years Agnelli has created high-quality products dedicated to assisting these activities with both rigor and simplicity. The company aims to ‘speak the language’ of Italian cuisine in all of its local variants. Agnelli views cuisine as more than a simple art form; it is part of the historic memory of a culture and its territory, of a nation and its traditions. We are pleased to collaborate with this Agnelli – a company with a unique passion and ability to understand the possibilities of design and the relationship between form and function in the creation of kitchen tools and utensils.
