The last thing that will come to our minds while getting furniture for our living room is how it will affect our taste buds? However with the edible furniture collection, Design studio Lanzavecchia + Wai has just done that.
The AUSTERITY collection of Edible furniture for times of crisis consists of four conceptual objects which repurpose basic food reserves and finish the objects by covering elemental metal structures.
The collection comprises of Hard Candy coffee table, Chocolate chair, Grains sofa and a Hardtack table. The Hard Candy coffee table top is made from huge hard-boiled sweet (7 kg hard candy). The Chocolate chair is created from 24kg of white chocolate. The backrest of the Grain sofa is made from rice bricks and the cotton quilt full of dried beans. The Hardtack Table has been baked into a cracker and is supported by 36 cans of corned beef.
The collection was displayed during Milan design week 2013 at the Padiglione Italia’s Foodmade exhibition.
