The GOODS from Glasfurd & Walker
Vancouver, BC | If there was ever an example of the potential of great food and great design coming together, you need look not further than Gastown’s Meat & Bread. Since opening in late 2010, the shop has not only received considerable accolades and recognition for the food they were creating but also for the design. The unique concept has caught the attention of magazines such as Monocle and Wallpaper* magazines and other design publications around the world. And, in April this year, Wallpaper* invited Meat & Bread to exhibit in their prestigious Handmade Exhibition.
The exhibition features specially commissioned objects, installations, furniture, fashion, food and more by some of the world’s most respected designers, artists, craftsmen, brands and manufacturers and is held during Milan Design week. For their 2012 exhibition, Wallpaper* commissioned Meat & Bread to create a one-off, custom BBQ kit.
Glasfurd & Walker worked with Meat & Bread owners Cord Jarvie and Frankie Harrington to design a kit containing a super-sized jar of their signature mustard and 3 new BBQ condiments created by Chef Joe Sartor – a meat rub, onion jam and red pepper relish.
The design and material elements of the sandwich shop (designed by Craig Stanghetta) were distilled and compressed into a carefully crafted glass and herringbone box built by Macmillwork. The box was made from more than 700 individual pieces of wood and is inlaid with Meat & Bread’s animal iconography, water cut out of hot rolled steel as a hidden surprise when the jars were removed. Custom packaging was also created for the BBQ products specifically for the exhibition.
