The Stop Night Market
As designers we know that the material world is finite. We have to create with a new mentality towards construction and sustainability. We believe that through the “Circle of Reuse” we can reduce construction costs and waste making our ecological footprint more sustainable, which will result in designs that are more affordable to the greater community.
Our food cart will re-use materials from installations developed for the 2016 “Dinner by Design” held at the Design Exchange earlier this year. The event brought together celebrated architects and designers to raise awareness and funds for charities in the local community. Local talent were tasked with creating a three-dimensional dining experience that inspires and delights – all for a good cause.
We reached out to the designers who participated in the event to see if they would give us any material from their installations to build our food cart out of. Joel Loblaw and Guido Constantino agreed to give us some items from their exhibits: “Outdoor Kitchen” and “Skin + Bones”. They believe in “designing for a good cause”.
By approaching the community and using their activation to start the “Circle of Reuse” we are able to change one link in the design process creating more accessible, affordable and sustainable products. How can the food industry meet the challenge in the same way?
- tubes will be coated to protect from water
- burnt kindle will be given back to Joel Loblaw for future design use
Dinner by Design
Dinner by Design brings together internationally celebrated designers and local talent to create three-dimensional dining installations that awe, inspire and delight. These extraordinary dining environments — from the lavish and romantic to the outrageous and whimsical — set the stage for two days of fun and fascination – all for a good cause.
Donated material by Guido Constantino – 8′ to 10′ cardboard tubes.
Skin+Bones: The design is a play with the skeletal bones and skin of a space, with structure and appearance. A thin white metal structure outlines the area and an array of white cardboard tubes elaborates on the spatial chalk lines of that skeleton.
Donated material by Joel Loblaw – Burnt kindle wood and boxes
Our concept builds on the idea of an outdoor kitchen. Think firewood, enamelware camping plates, woodland greenery and nostalgic items found at your grandparent’s cottage. Our visitors will get the feeling of stepping out of the city and into the woods with a cozy cabin close by.
