If I were to choose, I'd give upstart designer, Hafsteinn Juliusson the award for one of the DesignMarch 2012 best design...right after giving him the award for worst design. First, the good stuff: the Wheel of Nutrition plates, while being great dinner party conversation starters, serve a practical purpose by reminding us every meal what proportion of meat, vegetables, and grains we should eat. Now, the bad: Slim Chips, baked pieces of paper flavored with "organic tastes."
"They are perfectly edible," said Juliusson, who, with his thick-rimmed glasses and shaggy hair is a dead-ringer for Jarvis Cocker. "China and other countries are already contacting me and trying to get them." Flavors include blueberry, peppermint, and sweet potato. To Juliusson's credit, he claims Slim Chips are more a conceptual art piece than a food product.
