A reflection on food has been one of the most prominent trends in recent years and the design industry has been no different, often choosing to tackle it.
Le Bateau is a lump of sugar that is “sinking”: the designer has adapted an everyday object in such a way so as to make it graceful and playful.
The name of the project is an ironic tribute to Arthur Rimbaud and his “Drunken Boat”: a little ship made of cane or refined sugar.

In 2013, Bateau was selected to be part of the “Progetto Cibo” exhibition (curated by Beppe Finessi) at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto, together with the works of other designers and architects, such as Bompas&Parr, Achille Castiglioni, Giorgetto Giugiaro, Marti Guixé, Alessandro Mendini, Gaetano Pesce, Diego Ramos, Philippe Starck and top chefs such as Gualtiero Marchesi, as well as Bruno Barbieri, Massimo Bottura, Antonio Canavacciuolo, Carlo Cracco, Daniel Facen, Davide Oldani, and Davide Scabin.
