Culinary craft: Sarzi writes a recipe for London Design Festival

29.08.2013 Traditional : Food Art : Low Tech

London – LS:N Global paid a visit to food designer Jacopo Sarzi’s studio to get an insider’s view of what he is cooking up for September’s London Design Festival.

Motivated by the desire to ‘re-teach’ food, Sarzi’s hand-on style of food design and performance is educational and theatrical.

For the Design Exquis exhibition during LDF, Sarzi has been exploring the processes normally used in traditional soap making. Inspired by these methods, Sarzi is hand-building a lo-fi ice cream-making machine using cork and spun aluminium. Different flavours of ice cream will be made and served, all inspired by soap scents.

‘I wanted to create a centre piece, somewhere where people can all engage,’ says Sarzi.

The Design Exquis exhibition, curated by Florian Dussopt and Géraldine Vessière is based on the surrealist process of exquisite corpse. Read our previous interview with Dussopt at the last Design Exquis exhibition during Clerkenwell Design Week.

Sarzi’s finished work will be shown during London Design Festival at the Roca London Gallery, as well as DesignMarketo’s Perfume, sir? at the Londonnewcastle Project Space.
