Pa i Porta edition 1
Paiporta is a town located in the province of Valencia. In catalan and valencian the word Paiporta can be divided to form the phrase “pa i porta” (bread and door). This is not in fact the towns name etymological origin, which seems to derive from the latin prope hortam, ‘near the farm’. The word play pa i porta has become a common expression for the communal dinners in which the neighbors bring food and the organisers offer a space, drinks or the appetizers.
Pa i Porta are a series of dinners where we invite the guests to explain their work through a dish cooked by themselves. In this first edition we invited a group of young product designers from Barcelona. Must of us didn't know each other.
In every edition we design and produce the glasses and gift them to the guests. To create them we transformed some product design classics into glasses. A gesture that might be seen as a tribute or a joke.
Guests: Marta Ayala, las Oblicuas, Jorge de la Cruz, Marie Blanc, Sanna Völker, Julen Ussia, Ibai Velilla, Berta Julià, Angel Valiente, Alejandra Perini and Marine Le Razavet.
