Baked is the result of a commission for an exhibition presented during Dutch Design Week, on the theme “Getting Lost”.
“Baked is inspired by a Sicilian folk event in Salemi, where a flour-based material is used to create architectural decorations.
The project is an homage to bread and flour – primordial and essentials materials that accompany our daily life – and to the craftsmanship of baking and cooking.
The result is a collection of containers and vessels made from a material based on ingredients found in the kitchen such as flour, coffee, cocoa and spinach, mixed together with other natural products such as salt, shellac and spices to make the objects durable.
The vessels are refined with elastic belts that allow the user to arrange bakery products as a new form of decor.”
