GOOD Design Daily: Dezeen's Massive Food and Design Report

The design blog Dezeen and the luxury kitchen appliance brand Scholtès recently joined forces to explore "the cross-pollination between the worlds of food and design." Using April's furniture fair in Milan as ground zero for research, the operation began with a series of interviews and continued with the compilation of stacks of evidence suggesting overlap between the two disciplines.
The results are detailed in Dezeen's massive Food and Design Report, which explores everything from the influence of design in how we understand recipes and food components to the evolution of the kitchen from utilitarian workspace to social environment. Anyone who's ever hosted a cocktail party can attest to the curious phenomenon of an empty living room and a kitchen full of conversation, and a section of the report unpacks the roots of that magnetism.
