is an experimental studio focused on eating experience mediated by food design
Our primary aim is to connect consumers with foods at the emotional level giving them the possibility to interact with their dinner in unusual ways.
The feelings concerning the experience of tasting certain meals are affected by food physical properties as well many other factors such as culture, environment, peers and parental influence, tools, appearance and diners.
These play a role on our liking rate, willingness to eat and sense of satisfaction equally to taste.
Warm Cocotte is founders by me and Gloria Viganò, both Italians and with a great passion for food which we combine with a background in design studies with several experimentations in food and eating design fields.
Big cities fast mentality judges food as mere nourishment losing the values of sharing a gratifying meal with someone special and preferring quick packed lunches or cheap junks.
The intent of the studio is to spur people to reflect on food as social catalyst and vehicle of unpredictable emotions.
The experimental process allows us to collect real feedbacks from our guests and to design any time different custom dinners to canalize consumers’ reactions and feelings.
Fantàsia is a toy for children developed in collaboration with Gabriele Lucchitta for the course “Basics of three-dimesional design studio” held by the architects Riccardo Varini and Massimo Barbierato.
The inspiration came from the book for children “Favole al telefono” written by Gianni Rodari. The project encourages children to play with light and shapes, carrying them in a magic world where they become directors of their tales or audience of parents animated narratives.
The structure is made by plywood and divided internally into three layers of PMMA. Through the use of neodymium magnets, it allows to compose the scenario with figurative and abstract shapes of wood. It gives the possibility to create prospective backgrounds or play with the overlap of several silhouettes.
The toy is designed to contain all the necessary pieces and to be easily transported and stored.
