Milk by apple. Flour by Prada. Coffee by Cartier. Peddy Mergui, owner of a brand firm, and a senior professor of design at the Holon Institute of Technology, has made an interesting exhibition called Wheat is Wheat is Wheat. “By infusing the packaging of our most basic commodities with values of prestige and luxury, Wheat is Wheat is Wheat explores the dynamic and often blurred ethical boundaries of design within consumer culture. This exhibition is meant to highlight the challenges a designer faces when tasked with promoting economic interests while remaining true to his or her own moral compass. The various exhibits combine shapes and images from the world of consumption with concepts from the field of consumer ethics. They serve to highlight both the contentious, potentially arbitrary connection that products have to packaging, and the ethically challenging conditions in which designers are asked to operate. Using humorous, yet provocative undertones, Wheat is Wheat is Wheat will leave you with more questions than answers – particularly on your next trip to the supermarket. The exhibits were created as works of art and are the result of the freedom of creative artistic expression.”

The design firm Strømme Throndsen Design has created brand identity and packaging for Holli Mølle. Holli Mølle is a small organic mill in eastern Norway, specializing in flour production with the use of ancient and nutritious grain types. Their target group is modern women who value health and nutrition and are willing to pay extra for the safety and taste of the organic flour, thereby providing them with an extra feeling of love and care for their family. In the packaging development they looked into environmentally friendliness, functionality, flexibility and efficiency in production. They wanted to find an identity which could challenge the existing visual language in the flour category. The work is rewarded with the award for Design Excellence 2009.
