For Peruvians, enjoying a good meal is always an opportunity to celebrate. The PACHA, Culinary design from Perú to Italy exhibition pay homage to the ritual of food in Peru. The sculptural objects, pieces of design seek to give a special place to the traditional dishes like Sudado, Ceviche, Causa and Papa a la Huancaina. The design project is inspired by the different and luxuriant varieties of the Peruvian landscape: desert, mountains, rainforest and oceanic coasts.
For the second time Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) and Perú Design Collective get together to present PACHA: Culinary design from Perú to Italy, an exposition housed and curated by Camp Design Gallery and Gala Fernández during Milano Design Week 2018 and would be developed in three consecutive and related workshops run by Piopio Design Labs between Lima, Murano and Carrara with chef Diego Oka and designer Gala Fernández.
It is an experimental workshop of new crockery concepts for food. Seeking to recover Peruvian cooking heritage and designing new products made of glass and marble that impact the way we experience Peruvian food.
This project intends to focus on the dialogue between Peruvian gastronomy and the Italian manufacturing with established professionals and students from the Interior Design School of the Design Faculty of UPC. Their expression is inspired by the recognized Peruvian food and now it is open to the world through a banquet set up of unique pieces for the most sparkling week in Milan.
