add a bit of fun to your coffee by plopping one of these sugary boats into your steaming cup of joe, and watch it slowly sink its way down into the dark pool of caffeine.  even if you’re not a morning person, these little confections designed by enrico azzimonti and jordi pigem for ernst knam, are bound to sweeten up your day.



watch these little confections slowly sink…



into your hot steaming coffee.





the work is part of an exhibition ‘the food project. the shape of taste‘ curated by beppe finessi at the MaRT/ museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di trento e rovereto. the show presents the art of industrial projects and experimental design applied to food. open to public from february 9 to june 2, 2013.

  • We probably all played that game when we were kids… It’s lovely to see the poesy of it in this work of art 🙂
