SAPORE DEI MOBILI
Do we still have appetite for all this furniture?
This project has born as a reflection about the velocity of the contemporary furniture industry and how the consumers are unable to digest the huge amount of new products companies are launching in the market every year.
For Salone del mobile 2012, we proposed an alternative way of experiencing furniture making, FURNITURE PAN. An object that mixes both traditional Japanese small cakes ‘baby castella’ with a Portuguese egg based pastry called ‘ovos moles’.
Using the same molding technique, we created a new typology of object and at the same time a new tradition.
Playing with food is now allowed. Serve your favorite pieces of furniture to your children and friends. You can create your eatable living room and paint the furniture cakes with your favorite jams and toppings.
In this way, if the user gets tired of the furniture, he just eats it without creating disposals. And start all over again with a different recipe.
