Dornbracht is launching a new concept at Art Basel this year, Global Street Food. For this display, the German based company, which is a world-class manufacturer of kitchen and bath faucets, is taking the kitchen to another level. If you are familiar with the company’s cultural coup, than this latest creative vision is true to form. In order to have viewers understand the importance of the function and design of kitchens, Dornbracht is creating an exhibit that celebrates the diversity and ingenuity of actual street “kitchens.” There will be everything from a Vietnamese market boat with soft drinks and veggies, an Argentinean charcuterie cart, to a “green” Sudanese tea stand, made from recycled tires and tin cans. The purpose of the exhibit is to have viewers understand the importance of the function and design of kitchens. Dornbracht’s creative and brand director Mike Meiré said, “it’s about being aware of the kind of kitchen you really need for your lifestyle, and then developing the design.” The exhibition premiered at IMM Cologne furniture fair in January this year with remarkable success. The goal is for the project to reflect the crossroads between architecture, design and art… a topic that is sure to be of importance to the Art Basel audience. I am sure this will add yet another dimension to the already diverse and exciting event.

 

Closed opening June 10th. Open to public June 11th and 12th.
