The competition requests that participants design objects mainly made of recycled aluminium or projects that use aluminium as a material of strategic importance (an important component that is an innovative and indispensable function). The objects proposed must have a close relationship with food within a specific scenario of the theme Eating Anywhere. The adverb "anywhere" indicates situations that the designer must define. The possible settings can be indicated in two macro areas: the anywhere of daily life and the anywhere of emergencies. The former sees objects used in situations in which food is experienced daily but in settings that are less equipped than usual: events, catering, parties; or in the office, at school, on the beach; but also in airplanes, trains, cars. The second sees the objects used in some form of emergency, in extreme places or conditions: on the street, in jail, in hospital, in assisted living communities, in nomad or refugee camps, in first response or civil protection scenarios; but also during sports or travels: mountaineers while climbing, motorcyclists in the desert, skiers in the snow, etc.
The designer must single out a specific reference scenario (or more than one) within which to solve the problem of food nomadism.
