BOOKS/READING: Design • Taste

Design • Taste is a brilliant books that looks at the design aspects of food and how we enjoy not just the experience of food but the environment in which we eat it in, from the table we eat it on the cutlery we use. It showcases the best bars, cafes and restaurants around the world that create the most attractive atmospheres to enjoy food around. However, the reason why I have popped it on here is sadly not for the content but rather the packaging. Designed by Viction Workshop, which is creative multidimensional workshop founded in 2001.

The book is coated with this fold out poster which depicts the table setting that you might find at home, complete with everything you could ever need at your fingertips. I think its a really creative idea to give tha audience back something, allow them to interact with the book, take something away from it for them to use. It shows they are not just passionate about the environment we eat our food in but the environment a book can give us too.
