In an attempt to get a discussion about food waste going, Polish design firm Studio Gyalik created the table you see above. They were inspired by the Vienna case study, where food thrown away in the Austrian capital could feed half of the population of Graz. Using nothing but dried out loaves of French bread, the table is supposed to make you feel bad about wasting food. Or something. We’re scant on details, and we don’t typically understand art anyway. All we know is we’re looking at a table made from bread and we’re getting kind of hungry.
The creation is art of an exhibition called “‘the food project. the shape of taste’ curated by beppe finessi at the MaRT/ museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di trento e rovereto. The show presents the art of industrial projects and experimental design applied to food. Open to public from february 9 to june 2, 2013.”
