Video: Arbeta gör man, ändå dör man by Ayhan Aydin & Livia Prawitz

On April 5, Ayhan Aydin and Livia Prawitz, designed a unique meal experience at Kuben in Fittja. When we arrived to the parking lot outside Kuben, the first meal was served – barbecued right next to us.

Inside Kuben, we got a message played from a speaker saying that we had to assemble the dinner table, which was a pile of old tyres and wooden debri. A great experience to share with a group of strangers. We all formed a special bond, and by the time of sitting down we all felt that we kind of knew each other a bit better. The music that accompanied the dinner, alongside the setting inside Kuben, created a mystical atmosphere!

Sense Lab Teaser • The Gaze (Esp)

During Stockholm Design Week Underverk hosted a teaser event for our upcoming Sense Lab during Season 2. People could experiment with different tastes, using pipettes and test tubes. The flavours included ginger, ume syrup, blackcurrant, apple, beetroot, pop rocks and many more..

Andrejs Ljunggren and Jacob Stenman made an installation for the night The Gaze (Esp).

Some of our observations were:

Comment on poprocks:
“Wow this takes me back to when I was 10 years old.”

The perception of the amount of alcohol suddenly changed when drinking from a test tube.
“Thats’s enough, thank you”.

Guests mixed flavours they usually wouldn’t try, exploring new combinations they loved. This included sauerkraut.

Thanks for joining!
