70 x 7 The Meal act XIX was a dinner for 70 guests who were invited to inaugurate the pioneering masters program Man & Humanity, at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002, headed by Lucy Orta. The program, the first sustainable master education in Europe, mentors graduates to evolve solutions to social and environmental issues.
The limited edition Royal Limoges plates commissioned for the diner depicts a convoy of Red Cross ambulances, set against the rim of the white porcelain. However, the underside of each of the seven plates reveals an image of a crisis situation, one to be tackled by the students entering the program.
