Eataipei. A sensory exploration of the 2016 World Design Capital at Tent London
Eataipei, a series of immersive culinary performances, will take place at Tent London this September, introducing Taipei as the World Design Capital 2016 through a diverse presentation of contemporary Taiwanese cuisine, design and architecture.
An experimental tasting menu of five dishes, curated by Taiwanese-born designer Shikai Tseng and architects Rain Wu, created by Taiwanese chef, Chung-Ho Tsai, who will lead the audience on a narrated journey exploring five fundamental aspects of Taipei: history, landscape, people, lifestyle and the future. The senses that are triggered through this experience – taste, touch, sound and smell – will provide the bridge between the act of eating and the design history of Taipei. In the tasting of this series of exquisitely crafted dishes, the audience will be led on an immersive and sensory exploration of the city.
The food performance will take place alongside an exhibition that showcases the best contemporary design from Taipei including lighting, ceramics and industrial design from designers such as Pili Wu, KIMU Design Studio and Allrover. The works displayed will reinforce the narratives from the food performances and reveal the rich design practices from this inspiring metropolis.
