baguette tables by studio rygalik

in wanting to generate a discussion about food waste – using vienna as case study where food thrown away in the austrian capital could feed half of the population of graz – studio rygalik of poland, went in search of finding new ways in which to make use of basic, but less obvious materials, around us to build as is evident in their series of ‘baguette tables’ which are exactly as their name implies. taking stale pieces of the typicallong and narrow french bread, they cut the loaves to varying lengths, their exposed ends leveled to create the table tops, the longer pieces providing support and stability, functioning as multiple legs, as well as providing some tasty, visual appeal.

    Montres Lip says:
  • I love it. I was looking at tree roots in Panama with the same idea. Just dip the bread in PU .. add a glass top.

    Rich says:
  • Put a glass of coffee and lets enjoy the taste of that bread. JOKE!!!!

    JimCan is right, add a glass on top.
