Edible Crafts is a speculative design experiment exploring how the combination of food, craft and science can lead to resilient models for design. ECR looks at fully consumable, closed-loop design using edible and compostable materials sourced from local ecosystems.The experiment focuses on the table setting in the domestic space. Informed by culinary traditions, rituals of eating and the landscape, ECR designs a complete dining experience using a limited number of shared ingredients. In Table Vivant monomaterial design concepts based on food source are explored to design edible tableware for a table landscape that includes food, textiles, and edible solar cells (Temporary photoElectric Digestopians), all produced with locally sourced ingredients. The table landscape serves as a medium to communicate principles of resilience and interdependency.


Table Vivant is the work of Carole Collet (MA Textile Futures Course, CSM) and Bartaku (FoAM) with the help of the Future Textiles CSM students.
