Food Design Experience. Only YOU Hotel Atocha has joined the Madrid Design Festival 2019, dishing up amazing culinary delights at the hands of design studio Plutarco. What could be a better way of journeying through the last century of design than by eating it? Only YOU has an interesting sampling meal, available from 19 to 24 February, which consists of adapting 10 design icons into edible formats, a perfect way for striking up conversations and dialogues centring on design and gastronomy. These two fields have always been connected, but normally by way of design objects as containers for foods or utensils for eating. Or even from the viewpoint of the venue as a place to enjoy and enhance the dining experience. But, what would happen if a specific design piece could be transferred as literally as possible into something edible? An imperial table set up for 25 at a price of €50/person, as they reinterpret 10 iconic pieces, each from one decade in the last century served up as a tapa, with a nod to our national cuisine, being created by Javi Mora, the executive chef at Only YOU Hotel Atocha. The rigidity of the Rietvielt chair, the colours of the vases by Alvar Aalto and the simplicity of the Dieter Rams alarm clock will be just a few of the items to be extrapolated onto your plates and the main stars of these exclusive dinners based on an experiential concept. How will their features change when transforming them into tastes? All precursors and paradigms for new aesthetic models, each piece selected entails a change to the society of its day and a true revolution with regard to materials and methodologies.
