Furniture as Food, and Food as Furniture.

22 Aug

It’s Monday, and it’s hot, and there are a whole five more working days until another glorious three day weekend, so I thought I’d keep things light this morning. As I’m sure you’ve gleaned from reading any of my posts at all, I love food. Particularly sweets. So naturally I find furniture and fixtures MADE FROM CANDY to be worth at least five minutes of my blogging time. Check out some of these amazing, fun, and dare I say gaudy reinterpretations of home decor, all made with a sugared medium.

This appears to be a Mies Van Der Rohe Barcelona Sofa, but it’s actually a real, edible cake by Leandro Erlich. Isn’t it amazing!  I makes me cringe just seeing them cut into it, but I bet it’s delicious!

This Button Bench from Jellio Furniture after my own heart: minimal with a punch of color.  In fact, I designed a very similar one for my thesis project almost four years ago. Incidentally, this image appears to be computer generated: I wonder if they’ve sold any…?

Jellio Furniture makes some other interesting items too, including this Gummi Bear Chandelier. Unfortunately, it’s made from acrylic gummi bears, but the effect is the same (and longer lasting, I’m sure!).

Now this Gummi Bear Chandelier by artist YaYa Chou, is ALL REAL. Aesthetically, I prefer Jellio’s version, but I can’t deny that the craftsmanship on this piece is stunning.

Doesn’t this just make you want to run to the nearest convenience store for lunch and grab all of the candy bars you can find? Or is that just me….

Have a great week, everyone!

    That phenomenal! I would love a gummy bear chandelier–these are all amazing. I wish I could see them in real life.

      I know! I have a feeling the Jellio one isn’t exactly ready made, and I bet the art piece is in a puddle somewhere, but they’re beautiful!
