Riccardo Cenedella | Alimenta

Food is everything that is taken in by humans and used to keep them alive. However, we throw away an average of half a kilo of food per day. This means 89 million tons of food wasted each year in Europe only.

Alimenta is an experimentation project conducted by me, into food waste and biobased material. In this project, I tapped my ability in making and I create an ad hoc material using food waste I daily produced. We are continuing to make new products sourcing fresh raw materials while we could create from our waste. We must create what is yet to come with what is already here.

The outcomes question our notion of waste and production and show the possibilities of discarded materials.

These are decorative objects and not water-resistant, in the eventuality of damages, the recipe will be sent so that everyone can fix their objects.

All the works featured on this page are examples of custom made pieces.To commission one, see contact details for more information.
