Food Design

A film by Martin Hablesreiter, Sonja Stummerer

2008, HDCam, 16:9, 52 Min.

Synopsis

The sound of sausage: When a bite produces a distinct crunch, they taste particularly good. Fish sticks, on the other hand, don’t make such great noises, but they can be arranged nicely in the pan. And why tea biscuits must have precisely 52 notches is still not clear.



The TV documentary FOOD DESIGN shows how form, color, smell, consistency, the sounds made during eating, manufacturing technique, history and stories influence food design. Should foodstuffs be considered designer products in the same way as Armani suits, Alessi coffee cups and Ferraris? Of course!

FOOD DESIGN makes a case for a design discipline that has received little attention, inviting its audience to take part in a sensual journey through the wonderful world of food.
