FOOD DESIGN WEEK
IED Barcelona is participating in the latest edition of Food Design Week, organised on the occasion of Barcelona Design Week, within the framework of the specially-designed gastronomic routes, and in particular the Emblematics Route.
The festival that unites gastronomy and design, organised by Barcelona Centre de Disseny together with Foodture Barcelona, aims to revitalise both sectors by bringing the different experiences that take place in bars, restaurants and gastronomic spaces closer to the public.
For this reason, thematic routes have been organised across different areas of Barcelona: the Zero Waste Route, the Shaking Minds Route, the Emblematics Route, the Restaurant Experience Route, the Coffee & Design Route, and the Proximity Route by Alhambra.
IED Barcelona will be present in the Emblematics Route, along with other design schools, in a bid to highlight the value of traditional bars and restaurants through a case study that emphasises the history and identity of these spaces.
In particular, two former students of product and interior design have been actively involved in the Pla de la Garsa restaurant, which specialises in Catalan cuisine and is located in the neighbourhood of el Born, and another two alumni in Casa Ràfols, an old hardware store converted into a restaurant.
You can visit them from 7 to 14 June:
