culinary creative consultancy tourdefork rethinks traditional tableware and utensil design with a collection of five laser cut acrylic rings for their ‘future of DIY’ series. the wearables can be decorated with cakes, fruit, sweets or any other delicious edibles, transforming small desserts into precious decorative elements to be both displayed and used.

 

the milan and london-based food design lab has created the objects for the latest issue of italian magazine casafacile as part of a column of tutorials that explain what rapid prototyping technologies are and how they work. using 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC technologies, the designs are easy and accessible DIY projects which can be downloaded for free from the magazine’s website and taken to the nearest fablab to be transformed into real objects.
