The project “Future of Food” is a model example of successful, interdisciplinary cooperation between different scientific and research centres and business. Based on the nutritional trends developed by the Infuture Institute, and taking into account cultural, social and environmental factors, students under my supervision undertook the design of food in the future. The assumption was that each of the projects would stay substantially embedded in reality, and the visionary concept needed a scientific basis. The final outcome is an exhibition of “Infuture
Food Lab” and preparation of the “Future of Food” report. All projects have been consulted with the microbiologist Adam Ossowicki from the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW). Projects created at the Gdańsk Academy of Fine Arts are part of the larger contribution to the report “Future of Food” prepared by Infuture Institute, whose strategic partner is Tesco.
A forecasting institute that defines the most important trends, describes them, and indicates the consequences for the economy as well as marketing of specific brands.
Tesco is a British multinational groceries and general merchandise retailer. It is the third-largest retailer in the world measured by gross revenues[ and the ninth-largest in the world measured by revenues. It has shops in seven countries across Asia and Europe.
The project was supported by Tesco Polska – Polish branch of the British retail chain Tesco Experimental Design Studio Department of Architecture
and Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk. Experimental Design studio managed by prof. Sławomir Fijałkowski and dr hab Marta Flisykowska
