Wood, Tools & Routine were the three key words that we gave to the sculptor Antoni Yranzo at the end of the summer 2019 to create a tool/cutlery that could be used during the gastronomic & artistic experience In The Bauhaus Kitchen at the Barcelona Pavilion. (experience of which we were curators and masters of ceremony). His response was a magnificent and iconic detachable fork made entirely of reclaimed woods from his workshop. A piece that the guests of the experience had to assemble on site (guided by the sculptor himself) and they used throughout the whole dinner at the Pavilion. In The Bauhaus Kitchen Knife was born as a challenge, a new creative exercise and a tribute at the same time, through which Elsa and Sebastián intend to decode and celebrate the creative imaginary and work philosophy of Antoni Yranzo in a search of a worthy companion who can match his fork on future gastronomic adventures. The knives were designed by Elsa and Sebastian and developed under the advice and close supervision of Antoni. They are made out of oak, African cedar (bosse) and copper. All the materials were recovered from Antoni Yranzo's workshop and hand crafted.

Spanish-Argentinian industrial designer Sebastian Alberdi runs his studio in Barcelona, where he has been located since moving from Buenos Aires in 2002. Also co-founder of design collective Outofstock , he has been creating furniture, small objects, conceptual pieces and experiences for international brands and institutions such as Ligne Roset, Blå Station, Bolia, The Josef & Anni Albers Foundation, Ekobo or Clear Gallery Tokyo among others. In addition to his design studio practice, he's been professor and external advisor at Instituto Europeo di Design Barcelona since his graduation in 2006. Sebastian’s work is in a constant exploration pushing materials, technology and crafts boundaries, seeking for new functional and visual codes.

Soy Elsa Yranzo, diseñadora, directora de arte y comisaria. Actualmente dirijo mi propio estudio de food design & food art en Barcelona: Creative Food Studio Bcn. Diseño, produzco, comisario y/o mentorizo proyectos con comida con el objetivo de transformar, inspirar, hacer reflexionar y generar nuevos vínculos entre la comida y las personas a través del diseño, el arte y la belleza. He trabajado para Hermès, Carolina Herrera, BMW, Mcallan, Rituals, Iberia..., entre otras marcas, museos y restaurantes. Investigo y divulgo contenidos como nuevos experimentos científicos, ingredientes, recetas, espacios, utensilios... que empujan los límites de la cocina para mostrar cómo los rituales de hacer y comer nos pueden conectar cultural, social y políticamente. Con las mentorías “Eating the Future” ayudo a restauradores a (re)pensar el futuro de los restaurantes, visualizando el nuevo paradigma en el que el futuro comensal también tiene hambre de creatividad, cultura, rituales, tendencias, producto real, innovación, sostenibilidad… Soy docente en diferentes universidades de gastronomía y diseño, impulsando y promoviendo la disciplina de food design. En la actualidad genero nuevos contenidos holísticos alrededor de la gastronomía y el diseño para festivales, publicaciones, restaurantes y para industrias de la alimentación. Autoproduzco proyectos con otros profesionales sobre temas que me interesan como el despilfarro alimentario, la gastronomía y la feminidad o mi último proyecto que consiste en celebrar el centenario de la Bauhaus relacionando la escuela de Weimar con la gastronomía.
