Pop up food events, food experiences, and fashion accessoriesare the way of making food design for Mani in Pasta Lisboa, a food design brand based in Lisbon – and now also present in Barcelona, founded by the architects Elisa Sartor and Valentina Toscano.
“We will printour interactive accessories: tote bags, T-shirts, backpacks, kitchen cloths, andnow beach towels too, creating social connections between those who wear themand who read them.We are aiming to bringa right dose of word design and contemporary craftsmanship for the first timeto the city of Barcelona and it will happen in the heart of Born! We like tocall it an urban acupuncture action!” Valentina ad Elisa stated.
For Barcelona Design Week 2017, on 7th of June Mani in Pasta proposesFOOD IS COLORS, aselection of writings that approach the world of Italian gastronomicspecialties, emphasizing and rediscovering the concepts of geometry, shape, andcolor, who themselves communicate unconsciously.
Maniin Pasta cames up with the idea of a pop up live printing performance at Variopinte,a design store, bringing to Barcelona their owndesigned “analogue alphabet” of wooden stamps made at the Fablab Lisboa.

Incollaboration with Fab Lab Lisboa, Mani in Pasta has designed and made the mainingredient of a design line: an alphabet of wooden stamps. With the letters Valentinaand Elisa will hand print interactive accessories that can generate urban andsocial connections between the user and the reader. “We want to create a virtuous link between Fab Lab Lisboa and Fab Lab BCN through our creative and cultural project. We want to show how we can makefood without food, just throughout the architecture of words and imagination”they stated. SUPER MANZANA: thewriting that best sums up the multidisciplinary nature of the project Mani inPasta. Architecture, food, design, urban planning: all in one creativeexpression.
