Socialkitchen is a collection of handmade tools designed by Arabeschi di Latte on the theme of conviviality. Objects of different culinary traditions, with a convivial ritual and a “social” sense, that have been reinterpreted. The friendship’s cup, the fondue burner, the tray tajine, all items that have the great ability to create relationships between people, either friends or strangers. Traditional objects that are released from their folkloric connotations and rather proposed as archetypes of sociality.
Originally designed for the Gwangju Design Biennale 2011 “Dogadobisangdo – design is design is not design“ curated by Ai Weiwei and Seung H-sang . Part of the collection was also included in W. WOMEN IN ITALIAN DESIGN (2017), curated by Silvana Annichiarico at Triennale Design Museum.
