Ananas Ananas is a food-art studio founded by Verónica González and Elena Petrossian. Their work focuses on creating edible installations and dining experiences that encourage their audience to interact with food in a multi-sensory and experimental way. These experiences are intentionally temporary, meant to be enjoyed mindfully and to facilitate intimately present moments.
Their first tableware offering, : Dos Puntos is a collection of metalware that promotes experimental dining in order to provoke intentionality around the way we eat, without creating a barrier between the people who are using it and the food being served. The pieces suggest the importance of shifting one’s focus to slow down time at the table, to be present and to create community. Until now tableware has traditionally been in similar shapes and forms across most cultures. With the introduction of these experimental pieces we aim to awaken a part of the mind that has not yet been exercised. Both sculptural and functional the designs imply that post use, the objects will live displayed out in the open rather than tucked away.
