Talking trash (about design)

So Takahashi

Medium: Food-grade recycled paper
Dimensions: 6 1/2″ wide x 9 1/2″ long


Disposability is an inherent function of paper dishes. The generic, dull, sometimes floral prints on the paper dishes reduce the quality of a meal. Attractive food ends up looking unattractive. “For me, food is as much about the visual experience as it is about the taste and texture,” says Takahashi. “Even in a setting that demands disposability, I would like to enjoy the food as well as the function (tactility and the look) of a paper dish so that I can complete the ritual of disposal and still have a nice aesthetic experience.”

About So Takahashi:

So Takahashi design studio combines commercial work with an ongoing exploration of design that floats between different dimensions: 2D, 3D, and audio. Whether a book cover, a chair, an album, or a performance, it is all part of the same exploration and creative process of designing an output—an expression.
