THE INSTANT NOODLE REPAIR CAFÉ
Diego Faivre / Pierre Castignola
For many they’re a snack but for others they’re a source of inspiration: instant noodles. Pierre Castignola and Diego Faivre have reshaped the discarded plastic containers that formed part of a stand in last year’s VIENNA DESIGN WEEK into a salon, in which they investigate the ostensible lifehack and internet phenomenon of repairing things using instant noodles. The repair café of the Amsterdam-based French designers creates unexpected settings that enable us to experience the artistic-creative repurposing of objects as tangible culinary phenomena: This is a place where creatives and noodle fans come together to share their thoughts about the flow of goods and the design-driven reuse of waste.
With design objects by: Jean-Baptiste Gambier, Olga Flòr, Flora Lechner, Yongwon Noh, Seunghwan Ji, Christian Hammer Juhl and Jade Chan, Tim Teven, Baiba Soma and Hugo Beheregaray.
