Two projects from the interdisciplinary subject Food Design System have been presented at the latest meeting of EDIVI on the theme people- and planet-centred design as the key to a sustainable future, within the framework of Barcelona Design Week.
Students Ana Sofía Rubio and Roig Vilaró from the Interior Design and Product Design programmes were the representatives participating in the event, explaining the projects Slow Soap and Plastik.
Both projects respond to a concrete and ambitious brief: to reflect on food preservation systems imagining a future without an electricity supply.
Slow Soap, by Roig Vilaró and Laura Bilbao, proposes a company that reuses olive oil from different restaurants to produce soap; and Plastik, by Ana Sofía Rubio and Bruno Pacini, conceives the creation of plastic containers using milk and vinegar.

The four proposals, from the areas of Design, Management & Design Strategies, Fashion, and Visual Communication, convey the interests and concerns of a new generation of designers.
Organised by Barcelona Centre de Disseny, the graduates of the class of 2021 were actively involved in two restaurants along the route.
“From a small farmer in the Philippines to a businessman in London, climate change is affecting everyone”.
IED students will explore alongside members of ONCE possible responses to the difficulties faced by this community with relation to everyday objects.
The installation has succeeded in recreating an oasis of calm and a connection with nature in Poblenou’s Parc del Centre.
What will the world of the future be like? What kind of vehicles will we use? Where will we live? How much will everyday objects change?
The summit will take place on 26 and 27 November at the Disseny Hub, which will feature three projects by IED Barcelona alumni.
‘478’ is the installation with which IED Barcelona was present in the special edition of Llum Barcelona.
‘Flink’ responds to the challenge to design an innovative proposal for the kitchen sink and tap space, including new features, all within a period of eight hours.
‘Join it’, a system of sustainable production by IED Barcelona Product Design students has won the 4th edition of the Social Ideas Contest for the Greek island of Lesbos.
'Castellers' is a proposal inspired by the colours and shapes of the long-standing Catalan tradition of the 'castells', or human towers.
A collection of clay pavement tiles that serve as a street filter system.
The projects chosen are the result of a creative process developed in different stages: from research to the final proposal.
The project is one of the designs selected by a jury of 43 international experts in the first round of this prestigious competition.
Interior Design and Product Design students explore new concepts of spaces, services and products capable of reconnecting humans with nature.
Innovative alternatives for mobility, spaces to reconnect with nature, sustainable fashion collections and new services focused on user experience.
The project evokes the evolutive process of the natural world, focusing on the irregularity of the biophilic and organic patterns.
