Nyam, Mediterranean Lifestyle Revisited is a project of furniture, lighting and contract design products developed by students of the Design Degree of EINA, University School of Design and Art of Barcelona (UAB) for Greenhouse, Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2019.

The name of the project, Nyam, is a tribute to the Mediterranean tradition through an onomatopoeia used to express that the food is delicious.

The project revises the essence of the Mediterranean as a lifestyle through 10 objects linked to food as a cultural and social act.

The products are presented in the form of a collection sharing textures, colours and shapes derived from materials such as wood, cotton, wicker or terracotta.

With Nyam, Mediterranean Lifestyle Revisited, EINA students bring the light, shapes and crafts of the south to northern Europe.

Ritu - Louis Ferraz

The objective of this design project is to add value to the moment we are gathered around a table to eat. This intention is expressed by two objects that are used to eat walnuts.

Mou - Gerard Arbués, Erik Jiménez, Mireia Ruiz, Arnau Salvadó and Juan Manuel Valencia

"Mou" is a trolley with removable trays that facilitates your daily tasks at home or in the office. It allows you to transport everything you need in your working day to work wherever you want and with everything you need. It also acts as a bridge in the offices-house and houses-offices, a trend that is increasing every time.

Flux - Luis Gimeno, Mariam Koraichi and Laia Navarro

In this project, instead of treating light just a luminous object, we tried to give it the importance it deserves in a specific social situation, we want to treat the light as a creator of a certain atmosphere. In order to do this we played with interaction between the user and the object and the reflection of light, to create a pleasant and interactive environment.

Brot - Ferran Gesa and Caterina Vianna

The lamp/germinator “Brot” is formed by two elements made from red clay: the tray for the sprouts, and the screen to direct light.

This combination of elements creates a dialog between food and furniture. It includes a pulley to regulate the height of the screen. The light reflecting off the red ceramic surface creates a warm atmosphere and because they are manufactured by hand each piece is unique.

Bolet - Damià Campreciós and Manu González

“Bolet”, which means mushroom in Catalan, is a collection of three poufs intended for
community-oriented areas where the user can feel completely free yet connected to nature.

Criba - Bruno Blay and Andreu Buqueras

Versatile and autonomous, “Criba” is a tabletop lamp developed to create a more intimate bond between the user, the light and its surroundings. It’s capacity to adapt to all possible situations around a table is the essence of “Criba”.

Cuita - Pia Callis, Maria Clot, Aina Facchi, Llibert Ferrer, Inés Lorenceau Berta Rovira

We propose a series of designs based on the ritual of preparing “pa amb tomaquet”, which is bread with tomato, a typical Catalan dish, and Mediterranean “ready-made” cuisine. Ready-made meaning that the ritual takes place at the dining table.

The sequence consists of four steps:
- Choosing the tomato
- Cutting the bread
- Pouring the oil
- Arranging the placemats
