Design Indaba 2012: Renown Chef Is Searching For The Flavor Of The Future
In our first installment of coverage from Design Indaba we hear about how upscale food production is about distilling a single moment onto the plate.
After twenty hours of traveling we have made it to Cape Town, South Africa where we will be spending the next three days at the Design Indaba conference. Day One proved to be nothing short of awe-inspiring with talks from creative visionaries, taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Center. Kicking off the day was FoxP2 an independent South African advertising agency, and John Bielenberg of project M and COMMON, who is a past PSFK speaker. Bielenberg is an educator and proponent of ‘thinking wrong,’ which in this case means infecting young people with a retro virus that makes them think differently and try to do good in the world. (More on that subject to come in our interview with Bielenberg.) Also taking the stage were landscape designer Dan Pearson, renowed chef René Redzepi, Eddie Opara of Pentagram, a Pecha Kucha style discussion with Rahim Bhimani, Carly Berger, Renee Rossouw, and Sputniko!, architect Alfredo Brillembourg of Urban-Think Tank, and lastly, data visualization artist, Aaron Koblin with music video director, Chris Milk. A packed day to be sure.
