During the traditional Fuori Salone fringe events in Milan, a surprising exhibition of designer cookies was held in Corso Como 9.
The exhibition, conceived and curated by the Faculty of Arts and Design at the Free University of Bolzano, also inaugurated the spaziocorsocomo9 exhibition space with an installation composed entirely of free-standing stainless steel elements by Alpes.
The understanding between the University of Bolzano and Alpes-Inox was sparked by this project on designer cookies and the new electronic element that Alpes was introducing on the market, which after months of testing made its debut at the exhibition “Pappilan: international designers create new cookies”. This was the ultimate test: baking the cookies for the visitors of this event.
The designers participating in this project were asked to become pastry chefs, and to send not only the cookies they invented and baked, but the recipe too, with sketches and considerations on the theme. There were functional cookies, cookies made to split and share, to wear, cookies in unusual shapes, but also with particular flavours, flavours that highlight the variety in the backgrounds of their authors.Participating designers included: Werner Aisslinger – (D) – Volker Albus (D) – Shin & Tomoko Azumi (J) –Sebastian Bergne (GB) – Sven-Anwar Bibi (D) – Jörg Boner (CH) – Fabio Bortolani (I) - Matali Crasset (F) – deepdesign (I) –Florence Doléac (F) – Uwe Fischer (D) – Alexis Georgacopoulos (GR) – Anna Gili (I) – Ineke Hans (NL) – Kazuyo Komoda (J) –Christophe Marchand (CH) – Gabriele Pezzini – (I) Projektstudio 7.5 (D) – Radi designers (F) – Regine Ritz (D) – Kosei Shirotani (J) – Studio Campana (BR) – Paolo Ulian (I) – Arnout Visser (NL).
