ABC Tools

For ABC Tools, Milan

Designed by Arabeschi di Latte, an interactive dinner was held in the ABC factory premises to celebrate the company’s 100 year anniversary. Playing with the ABC of conviviality — focusing on interaction, raw materials, taste, pleasure and a subtle interplay of relations — common hardware tools were used as unusual dining and serving implements.

Food was carved with tools, almost as if sculpting with marble, and classic eighteenth-century cutlery accompanied these instruments for the dinner service. On the menu: potatoes in clay, burned artichokes, bread soup, snails, forgotten fruits and old fashioned spirits.

The dinner was realised in collaboration with Bibendum.
