"Foodjects: Design and the New Cuisine from Spain"
The "Foodjects" exhibition at Apartment Zero shows that new Spanish culinary delights are well served with a dash of design.
Curated by Spanish designer Martin Azua, "Foodjects" is the latest in a series of one-country shows hosted by Apartment Zero. Among the inventive dishes, utensils, kitchenwares and ingredients is the "Taz-ah Cup" designed by Attua Aparicio, which turns a tea-drinker into an animal.
Botijo 'La Siesta' is a white terracotta drinking jug combining the appearance of a plastic water bottle with the traditional advantages of the Spanish botijo. Hector Serano, Alberto Martinez and Raky Martinez designed the bottle.
Martin Azua designed "Rebotijo," a redesign of a traditional drinking jug that cools liquid in full sunlight thanks to the porosity of the clay.
Martin Azua's stainless steel rings turn any napkin -- or surface -- into a bread basket.
The "Eggs" bowls allow for experimental combinations, letting different foods or even full courses rest side-by-side in the same serving dish. The bowl was created by Antoni Arola.
Julia Mariscal's "Writing Spoon" makes it possible to write and draw over coffee.
The "Spoon with Pincer" by Luki Huber allows a diner to make full use of their senses by tasting one food while smelling another.
A traditional teacup gets a makeover when the handle becomes a horse's leg. "Re-cyclos Magical" is from the Equus Collection made by Lladro and designed by Bodo Sperlein.
