recently the dutch designer duo scholten and baijings opened a retrospective at vivid gallery in rotterdam. they called their exhibition ‘from japanese furniture to vegetables’.

during milan design week 2010, at rossana orlandi in milan they showcased inedible vegetables with a great sense of realism to real produce. from a distance the stalks of raw rhubarb look almost real. however, it’s only when this fabric trompe l’oeil is right under your nose that the woven texture and the stitching is visible.

the realism is especially evident in the red stem that gradually becomes a paler in pink as it reaches the leaf. details such as the inclusion of dark veins makes these ‘fake’ vegetables especially convincing. the leaf curl up whimsically and slowly graduate in color from a green to a soft yellow and, finally,  to a pastel pink. even the half-round, slightly hollowed out form of the stalk is photorealistic.
