To celebrate the opening of Patricia Urquiola's Kvadrat textile installation at Moroso's Brera store this week, Danish food designers I'm A Kombo served up snacks in fabric shells, and drinks inspired by wool.
The designers took the colour palette of Urquiola's pieces - beetroot, green and yellow - as their starting point for the food experience, and developed a set of food, drinks and serveware for the occasion.
Two of Patricia Urquiola's new chairs for Moroso, which also launched this week, provided a centrepiece to the show, decorated with flowers and plants.
Popcorn and peppers nestled inside coloured fabric shells, which had been shaped and stitched so that they could be hooked over a bottle and eaten one-handed.
Drinks included Cool Wool #563, a dark purple potion made from blood orange juice, beetroot juice, gin, and Campari Bitters; and Cool Wool #924, a pale yellow brew of apple juice, spinach, Acacia honey, and fresh basil.
The Revolving Room is open at Moroso, via Pontaccio 8/10, 20121 Milan, until Sunday 14th April.
