Arabeschi di Latte in Milan

Friday, 13 April 2012

Italian food design collective Arabeschi di Latte's projects are fast becoming a highlight of Milan Design Week. For this year's edition, they will present a series of different projects across the city, continuing their exploration of food and its power to create compelling situations and relationships.

Arabeschi di Latte for Discipline

The collective have created a site-specific installation for new design brand Discipline (who we previewed here), which will focus on recreating the brand's values through food design. Find it at Spazio Discipline, Via Pietro Mascagni 2.

Elixir by Arabeschi di Latte for La Cura by Studio Toogood

While the collective's collaboration with Studio Toogood in 2011, Natura Morta, examined the darker side of the natural world, for 2012 they have prepared a soothing elixir for the brand's "hospital for the senses" La Cura at MOST, which you can read more about here.

Tokens/Love for Food and Wood by Arabeschi di Latte

Their third project, Tokens/Love For Food & Wood, is a culinary installation and special recipe book designed for Karimoku New Standard's retrospective and exhibition of new works taking place in a historic Milanese apartment. Showcasing Japanese craft at its finest, the exhibition can be visited at Erastudio Apartment Gallery, Via Palermo 2.

Wundertute - Surprise Envelops by Arabeschi di Latte & DesignMarketo
Arabeschi di Latte will also celebrate the opening of their new studio, at Via Ventura 3, Lambrate, with the Wundertute - Surprise Envelops shop and show curated by Design Marketo, at which visitors can enter a lucky dip to receive a memento of the collective's history so far.
