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 and Glasfurd & Walker to create a one-off, custom BBQ kit.
The design and material elements of the sandwich shop 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.
