KI·RA is a collection of utensils that facilitate the production and consumption of edible containers. One of the main inspirations were the most common outdoor meals: picnics and lunch breaks. The linear progress of food preparation and consumption of a temporary, alfresco meal becomes circular. The food vessel is part of the meal and the meal is the vessel. What remains is the memory of the meal. KI·RA comments on the takeaway food culture and enhances it through revisiting customary food rituals. By emulating the act of snapping pieces of bread, it also encourages the act of sharing.
KI·RA was launced during Milan Design Week 2014 with the installation KI·RA & The Edible Tower (of containers)
