Baked by Formafantasma

Baked, a work commissioned for an exhibition presented at Dutch Design weeks, is inspired by Salemi, a Sicilian folk event where a flour based material is used to create architectural decorations. The project pays homage to bread and flour – essential materials which accompany our daily life – and to the craftsmanship of baking and cooking. The result is a collection  of containers and vessels made from ingredients found in the kitchen such as flour, coffee, cocoa and spinach which is mixed together with other natural products like salt, shellac and spices which help reinforce the objects, making them durable. Each vessel is finished with elastic belts which allow the user to arrange various baked products around the pieces as a new form of decor.
