I’m really enjoying the objects available in the Sebastian Bergne online shop which just launched last December. Lots of fantastic things for the home and kitchen, as well as some playful stuff too. Sebastian Bergne is a multidisciplinary design firm out of London.

The Designers of Taste

December 15, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Whether you can afford it or not, the world of molecular gastronomy, the convergence of art, science, and food appears to be with us for a while as restaurants like Alinea and elBulli take honors as some of the best restaurants in the world. This new book, Cooking Science: Condensed Matter by Vicenc Altaio, Ferran Adria, and Josep Perello, is the physical catalog of a show presented in part by Harvard by the same name that sought to view gastronomy and nutrition through the eyes of scientists.

Cooking science invites us to look at cooking, gastronomy and nutrition through the scientist’s eyes and see them as a truly cultural activity which brings a wealth of knowledge into play. Challenging the predominance of visual culture, our eating habits and the pleasure of food privilege the senses of taste, touch, smell and even hearing. Perception and landscape define our cooking, but cooking also has a component of reflection and innovation based on scientific and technological research. […] This volume constitutes a unique document of this task. The book’s QR codes link the paper media with the digital media, augmenting the reality and giving further information.

You can see quite a few more pages from the book here. The question at the heart of this all, I suppose, is can food be regarded as true art? Or can science be art? Gah my eyes just crossed. (via we make money not art)

Citrange Innovates on the Hand Juicer

October 7, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Citrange. A simple fancy juicer by Quentin de Coster.

Citrange is a juicer designed by and for fruit. It is a product that is innovative both functionally and formally. This squeezer is divided into two parts to better adapt to the various diameters of citrus fruit. The juice is released by cells when the latter are pressed against the walls. Then it is directed towards the central axis of the object by the funnel (which filters out seeds) before falling into the glass.
