Food. We love it! Some love it so much they’ve created a whole lot more than meat and two veg. We’re talking edible coffee cups, a comfy chocolate cake daybed or even an entire village brought to life using household fruits and veg.
GOOD44, the marketplace with a mission to connect makers of food, health and wellness products with a local community has sniffed out and tasted our way through the best edible food art. Here’s five of the best:
Drink your coffee than eat your cup. This edible design was cooked up by Venezuelan designer Enrique Luis Sardi for Italian coffee powerhouse Lavazza. The photo has done the rounds now but we can’t get enough of it. Imagine that – a delicious espresso with biscuit in one. One word – genius!
Not as practical but the novelty factor is straight from an adults only Hansel and Gretal. This is a life sized replica of a day bed by legendary furniture designer Miles van der Rohe. On the left the real thing, on the right the chocolate edition.
We saw Lada Gaga don a beefy dress at the MTV Video Music awards but this dress made out of your run of the mill household greens seems a little more pc. The dress was created by 3-D illustrator Sarah Illenberger. Sarah said in an interview with Sight Unseen “I like using food as something completely normal, as I would any other material”. Using fresh ‘ingredients’ does create problems though. Sarah said “After an hour it already looked really shitty.”
In ’08 Nike commissioned some high profile creative’s to interpret the sportswear icons designs. Creative Director Olle Hemmendorff plated up this Nike Air Max 90 burger.
Visual Artist Carl Warner takes a more holistic view to his food art creations. Take a look at this surreal foodscape where Warner uses red onion hot air balloons.
If only the world was this delicious.
