‘sapore dei mobili’ by ryosuke fukasada and rui pereira

sapore dei mobili‘ (furniture tasting) is a commentary on the speed in which the furniture industry works, in particular the amount of products presented to the consumer market at the annual international salone del mobile.

rather than presenting new lighting or seating designs at this year’s milan design week, project collaborators ryosuke fukusada (japan) and rui pereira (portugal) developed a cake pan for making your very own ‘edible furniture’. using a moulding technique which reflects similar mass manufacturing standards, the hot cake maker allows one to produce their own pastries and decorate them with toppings and jams according to their individual tastes. the edible chair, lamp, side table, cabinet and vase allows you to digest new products a little bit easier, and when you’re done, you can always go back and test out a new recipe.
