Edible aromas. This space came into being due to Vanessa Redondo's passion to establish synergies between the creative disciplines to create unforgettable experiences. Her designs encompass everything from developing experimental materials to creating interactive spaces. For MDF, We Crave has prepared a gastronomy experience with a debate between the intrinsic essence of being and the essence of an aroma. Both have the same power of seduction, yet are imperceptible and mysterious. Starting from the premise that 80% of our sense of taste depends on aromas, the experience explores the sensory relationship of essential essences to our bodies and minds. A journey through the different layers that comprise the 'essence' of a perfume in every plate and bite, inspired by and created from edible aromas that evoke personal memories and experiences.

During the Madrid Design Festival, Marset is organising a talk on the lamp Dipping Light, one of Jordi Canudas's latest creations.

Initially created by dipping a turned-on light-bulb into paint, the lamp is absolutely fascinating, as its different tones of paint nuance the light, creating a magical effect. A new object of desire sure to become this firm's identifying trait, which in recent years has received the DME award (2014-2015) and the 2015 National Design Award, as well as the 2016 Red Dot award for its FollowMe lamp.
