tavola archaica

Tavola Arcaica / Fabio Molinas


The Tavola Arcaica is a conceptual project that relies on our ability to build a strong emotional bond between people and food with everyday objects, that goes beyond their use.
The use of the first tools made from stone was the first technological discovery of our species.
However, we have assimilated their use in a way that we no longer give them the importance they deserve.

The inspiration is drawn from the first knife, stylizing this object and making it as pragmatic as possible hence the ” pragma ” name. It came out as a blade with cutter teeth which are more than simple triangular shapes made by laser cutting in the steel plate.

In an ever accelerating pace of urban life, there is a general urge to slow down in order to fully appreciate experiences. This concept was inspired by primitive methods of cooking and crafting to engage people in simple, outdoor pleasures such as tool making and cooking over an open fire.

mr mitre

dr mitre/ philippemalouin

A ritual for uncertain times, Mr. Mitre is a bread mould and a beechwood mitre box. The tin bakes perfectly fitted, rectangular loafs and is accompanied by a box that allows 90 and 45 degree cuts to be accurately achieved. Whether a tool for sharing, building or personal use, the sheer knowledge that your daily bread can be cut with such exacting precision will help people with OCD as well as everyday bread cutters, making bread taste that much better.

baked autarchy

baked autarchy/ FormaFantasma

Autarchy is an installation that proposes an autonomous way of producing goods and outlines a hypothetical scenario in which a community embraces a serene and self-imposed embargo, and
where nature is personally cultivated, harvested and processed to feed and make tools to serve human needs. Autarchy pays homage to the uncomplicated, the simple and the everyday.
