Both creatives, though, recognise the importance of their teams in bringing ideas to fruition. “Our design team is made up from over 27 nationalities,” boasts Olah, “which makes it very interesting.” He cites the head designer, as being like a chef who decides what they should be cooking, what the concept is and then “we sit together, discuss, sketch and start to work.” Ress agrees. “The team is the most important thing. How it works together. It’s really important. I say that 10 eyes see more than two and five heads have more ideas than one. You feel part of something in a good team. You are a part of the whole story.”
And with that the dish is done and ready to be served. Like the KODIAQ, it’s a modern creation rooted in tradition and craft and in its beauty and exquisite flavours it represents the changing nature of a meal, in the same way that the KODIAQ indicates the changing nature of a car. With its lush greens and splashes of orange, it is rather like Mallorca’s landscape painted on a plate. Chefs, it seems, are like artists and designers are like chefs, but both have that driving ambition to achieve perfection in taste.
