Whether rustic orecchiette, elegant tagliatelle or spherical spaetzle: pasta, spaetzle and noodles do not come into their shape by chance, as they are all the result of long traditions, regional cooking skills and, last but not least, the hands and machines that make them. A beautifully shaped design is not only pleasing to the eye, a harmoniously curved pasta is also particularly pleasing to the palate. Design as a creative activity turns an undefined piece of dough into a popular food that is now mass-produced and served on plates all over the world. No one has ever been satisfied with pasta alone, let alone happy. 

From the hand to the machine, from the ceramic tin to outer space, from the poster to commerce, from the cooking pot to the museum: the exhibition 'al dente. Pasta & Design' sheds light on the many points of contact between pasta and design. It explores the question of how pasta gets its shape and what is done with it in the kitchen and design studio. Between rolling pin and industry, marketing and sustainability, design, craftsmanship and art, she looks at the practical shapers in the kitchen and industry, the tantalising communication design with posters, packaging and advertising, extravagant pasta designs by international star designers and creative works from art, commerce and the kitchen utensil scene.
