Abet Laminati
Colours Collection decors at K-RATION

Meals for Soldiers in Action
In the year of Expo Milano 2015, the theme of which will be Feeding the Planet: Energy for Life, Giulio Iacchetti through the exhibition K-RATION suggests a reflection on essentials of anonymous design in the food area.
The exhibition at the Triennale di Milano, focuses the attention on these particular food packages, which are authentic study cases for the world of design. Through a selection of exemplary cases, the exhibition illustrates the various types of rations that have been developed independently by each army. Among the rations displayed, there are also the preparations part of the “bonus food” dedicated to Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, currently on board at the International Space Station.
These particular packages are exhibited on ten tables realized using ten decors of Abet Laminati Colours Collection, selected because they are similar to the typical tones of the military world: these tones enhance the different types of rations of each army. The attendance to K-RATION curated by Giulio Iacchetti – who created the appreciated Parade Collection – confirms the important link between Abet Laminati corporate philosophy and design.
