The House of Reuse: FOOD AND RITES OF THE TABLE

 

 

 

Recycling project - The Table of the Future

CONCEPT

 

The proposed project is the personal interpretation of Simona Girelli of The Table of the Future.

An optimistic vision of a future in which, now fully aware of the richness of our land, we know how to exploit it and bring it to the table in a healthy way and without waste.

A future in which man knows the Nature and, with full respect, exploit and maintains a perfect balance in its entirety (WATER, AIR, EARTH and FIRE), allowing it to limit the environmental and feed the entire population world.

A future where we are able to see beyond the nature and shape of objects, thanks to constant information and careful education which comes from the past, we know how to take advantage of the inorganic waste and make them part of a life cycle always in continuous renewal.

In "House of Reuse", La Tavola del Futuro remains tied to the traditions remains as a foundation of our daily lives; a table that does not disperse in the technological evolutional technological, leaving contaminate from minimalism to the lines, but not the contents. A informal table but super organized and dynamic in which, through careful recycling, shows the life cycle of objects (containers for the food, means to spread the light and furniture).

Communication between the guests is conceptually expressed through gestures.

 

The balance between the elements, WATER, AIR, EARTH and FIRE, defines conceptually installation.

 

EARTH: dummy (recycled materials) used as support center of the table, to represent our Mother Earth and Man, the protagonist of his future.

WATER: the "sculpture" to effect "cascade", which is organized around the central support, is the result of the merger and assemblage of transparent plastic bottles recycled.

FIRE: fire allowed to mold the material and change its properties, through the chemical reaction of the merger.

 

Tableware

The objects that decorate the table are Etamina, fabric chosen for its close relationship with the kitchen (dish towel to filter soups, sauces or funds), combined with recycled plastic.

 

Diners

Hands of mannequins and displays for jewelery (recycled material), due to different positions, are the guests, through gestures, they shall express the dialogue.

The Silk, thanks to its chemical characteristics, is used for biomedical applications.

Recent studies are promising, in fact, in the use, in the near future, a silk protein as a biomaterial for the repair of damaged tissues of the human body.

In the futuristic vision of Simona Girelli this extreme use of alternative materials has long applied.

Through the Silk wanted to represent conceptually the human anatomy.

Bas-reliefs textiles, made by treating this precious and ancient fabric, perceive into missing body parts (arms diners and central bust).

 

Chandelier: assemblage of recycled disposable plastic tableware (cups, spoons, bowls finger foods, saucers, trays).textiles, made by treating this precious and ancient fabric, provide insight into missing body parts (arms diners and central bust).
