Fashion brand Benetton has published a book of artistic interpretations of food, designed by Fabrica. The work, available in an aluminium food container or limited-edition ceramic dish, features the transformation of food into pieces of art or erotic concepts by such design luminaries as Stefan Sagmeister, Wolfgang Tillmans and Alan Fletcher as well as young designers, photographers and writers. Entitled, and weighing, 2398gr, the book sets out to interpret such a basic cultural and anthropological stimulus as our relationship with food, which, according to Benetton, it views as a fetish, ritual, addiction, celebration, emotion and pleasure among other things.
