Im Orgá

This project was undertaken as part of the Cumulus Exhibition for the Milan Expo 2015. Our group from Aalto Universty, working under the collective name Materia Prima, quickly became interested in the ‘specialness’ of our individual food cultures. My project, Im Orgá celebrates one of the oldest and most integral ingredients in Irish cuisines, Butter. It explores the ritual and meaning of national food culture and is a design love letter to native Irish ingredients, which are sometimes overlooked in favour of imported delicacies.
