Stone of Origin

A piece of stone can take thousands of years to form, how about the food we consume every day? 

The Stone of Origin project is a cross-over between food design team: Deep Food and Cambodian stoneware brand: Unsign. It aims to trace the atomic origin of food consumed nowadays and to celebrate the long journey that food has taken to exist in its current form.

The project designs tableware made of sandstone. Each stone comes with a fictional story detailing the legacy of these “creatures” spanning over millions of years. These stone creatures act as a metaphor for food substances we consumed every day. Let’s view food as a matter that has taken millions of years to form, as much as the formation of stones. Can we appreciate food with this new lens in such an imaginary world?
