(Furniture tasting)

by Ryosuke Fukusada and Rui Pereira

This project was born as a reflection about the velocity of the contemporary furniture industry
and how the consumers are unable to digest the huge amount of new products launched every year.
For this Salone we propose an alternative way of experiencing furniture.
We present furniture pan, an object that mixes both traditional Japanese small cakes 'baby castella'
with a Portuguese egg based pastry called 'ovos moles'. Using the same molding technique we created
a new typology of object and at the same time a new tradition...

Playing with food is now allowed.
Serve your favorite pieces of furniture to your friends and kids. You can create your eatable living room
and paint you furniture cakes with your favorite jams and toppings. In this way when the user gets full
of his furniture he just eats it without creating disposals. And starts all over again with a different recipe...

Enjoy your furniture! Buon appetito.
