MONTALBA ARCHITECTS
at The Hammer Museum
09/29, Los Angeles



Drawing inspiration from Place & Space, a book by David Montalba, we designed a menu presented as a way to pay homage to the theory of “essentialism” followed by Montalba. Allowing the food installation pieces to communicate similar design principles that the firm stays true to. We have designed this installation to elevate the feeling of being in a museum by using white pedestals gathered together in the middle of the space as well as a mountain of pebbles that are a common medium throughout most of the spaces designed by Montalba.
