BRICKNIC

WHAT
Hollow clay bricks that can be filled with raw ingredients and stacked together to make a temporary outdoor oven. The bricks build social ties through a shared cooking and eating experience.

WHY
Inspired by the age-old process of brick firing in East Africa, this collaborative project aims to put social interaction back on the menu and celebrates community spirit.

HOW
At a Bricknic event, each participant is provided with a brick to fill with the ingredients of their choice. Everyone then gets together to discuss the plan, build the oven, light up a fire and cook the food inside the bricks. Afterwards, the oven is taken apart and it’s time to eat!

QUOTE
Let’s build and eat! This project was realised in collaboration with the German Römertopf company.
