Throughout history food and drink has been an integral part of our cultural consciousness, important in the founding and maintaining of new communities and societies. Arabeschi di Latte investigates these cultural practices, looking at contemporary rituals, the spaces they inhabit and the complex nature of how we eat today.

Arabeschi di Latte studio was founded by Francesca Sarti in 2001 to use food as a medium for her design and research practice. The studio was born from experimentation with design concepts, focusing on how eating and drinking has the power to bring people together, create conviviality and shared memories.

Sarti and her team work with international clients and partners to deliver bespoke experiences, events and installations, always blurring the boundaries between design, architecture and food. Sarti has created a vast amount of projects, from interactive installations at A/D/O New York to a temporary cafe at Selfridges, London; bespoke food concepts for the New York Times to workshops and performances at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

The studio's work has been commissioned by a variety of partners including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London Design Museum, Nouveau Musee de Monaco, MAXXI, MACRO, Fiorucci Art Trust, The Vinyl Factory, Molteni, Boffi, Tom Dixon, Caesarstone, Karimoku, AESOP, Davines, Hugo Boss, Burberry, Fendi, Marni, Zegna, Faye Toogood, Kenzo, Villa Eugenie, Pitti Immagine, Altaroma, Wallpaper*, San Pellegrino and Gruppo Illy.

Objects and installations designed by Arabeschi di Latte have been included in several international exhibitions. Recently, the installation “Water Tasting”, a research project around natural water filters, has been displayed at “Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival” an exhibition curated by Paola Antonelli at La Triennale Milano.
