Manifesto / Food to Soothe the Soul
A Manifesto by Massimo Bottura, top chef Osteria Francescana, rated as the world's best restaurant

Sowing The Seeds of Culture #58
Futurefarmers delves deep
Long before farmers’ markets and seed bombings became hipster lore, Amy Franceschini and her band of Futurefarmers were busy uncovering the intimate relation- ship between art, design, and agriculture. Founded in 1995 as an organic collective of artists, writers, designers, researchers, scientists, and farmers, Futurefarmers has created speculative futures, heirloom seed archives, home laboratory kits, and installation art, and has revived the World War II network of Victory Gardens – urban farms located across the United States. Since 2013, the group has been working on the Flatbread Society, a public artwork in Oslo that launches in September and is short- listed for an Artes Mundi Prize.
Glorious Gaggenau #58
333 years of continual progress
When in 1683 nobleman Ludwig Wilhelm von Baden founded an ironworks at the foot of the Black Forest in a village called Gaggenau, he could hardly have imagined that today his company would be among the most acclaimed manufacturers of high-quality professional-grade domestic appliances. Especially because back then Europe was deeply involved in endless bloody wars. In 2016, Gaggenau celebrates its 333th anniversary. On this occasion, the people behind the pioneering brand talk about why the company is much more than just a kitchen appliance supplier.
Clean Urban Skies #58
Daan Roosegaarde’s smog-free bubbles
Daan Roosegaarde is a social designer; he explores the relationship between people, technology, and space. Driven by the marvels of nature, he’s fascinated by such things as the light emitted by fireflies and jellyfish, and is equally fond of technology, all of which is reflected in iconic designs that effectively depict landscapes of the future. Studio Roosegaarde is his social design lab, which consists of a team of designers and engineers. The projects begin with ideas about future landscapes and then develop into remarkable physical entities. A particularly innovative approach leads to the dynamic, interactive works for which this creative thinker is known.
