The Eat Green Design festival merges organic cuisine with sustainable design practices in an experience that indulges the senses.
July 31st, 2009
Never before has ‘eating your greens’ been such an exciting and engaging concept.
Representing the ultimate approach to sustainability, Eat Green Design will inspire designers and architects to not only acknowledge the importance of sustainable practices, but to recognize the beauty and depth such approaches will add to their work.
The concept for the sustainable temporary exhibition was created by Cilla Maden of collaborate and purpose-built by architect Hannah Tribe of Tribe Studio to house a restaurant, theatrette and designers’ market.
The space lends itself beautifully to the theme of the event as it has been cleverly constructed to demonstrate the principles of sustainable architecture and interior design.
With the aim of reaching for perfection, even the tableware and furniture for the event has been specifically commissioned by a group of Australian designers to ensure harmony among the tone of the space and the theme of the event.
Here, diners can sample biodynamic and organic dishes whilst listening to discussions about the value of sustainability, and deepening their desire to embrace such principles.
The inspiring line-up of 40 key speakers includes Indesign editor Paul McGillick who will join a panel of experts to discuss the media’s overwhelming response to sustainability and design.
The venue will add an exciting dimension to the Sydney Design 09 Festival as it showcases design installations, talks, events, products and ideas sure to spark interest in the design community and leave a distinct impact on direction taken in the future.
A tantalizing menu has been prepared by renowned chef Jared Ingersoll of Danks Street Depot and will have visitors uniting around tables to share fine cuisine and stimulating discussion.
Further keeping guests lingering at Eat Green Design is the curated display of some of the most recent Australian designs exemplifying sustainable values.
Visitors are also able to purchase limited edition pieces created especially for the festival at the Young Blood Designers Market.
Running from 1-12 August at the Powerhouse Museum, guests can book in for an Eat Green Design breakfast or dinner, or drop in for a coffee and re-discover an appreciation for sustainable practices.
