28 grams of happiness
Looking back at Dutch Design Week 2018
After the huge success of last year’s design dinners, What will we eat in 2050?, food design studio THE EATELIER and chef PIPPENS are teaming up once again this year during Dutch Design Week. This time, they are experimenting with happiness, and how to cultivate it through food.
Surrounding the food experience is the exhibition 28 grams of happiness, curated by JUSTINE KONTOU. This joyful, sensorial exhibition, experiments with colours, shapes and materials to create an environment that also brings people in a positive state of mind. It will present how art and design can provoke a sense of wonder, luck, content and/ or gratefulness. Bringing the total experience to a complete journey through the pursuit of happiness.
A combination of circular, organic and geometric shapes in bright, cheerful and light colours have been carefully selected. For example, work by design studio RIVE ROSHAN, who are known for their deep interest in colour, texture and materiality; STUDIO ROOS MEERMAN will show a multi sensorial installation with soft, tactile textures, which visitors can explore; and studio ENRICHERS, known for their experiences based on neuroscience, will enrich the exhibition with tools to stimulate movement and interaction. ALISSA + NIENKE show their unique interpretation of surface design: creating materials that build intriguing and enriched spaces for those who live or work in them.
