The two fellas behind Sapore dei Mobili are Portuguese and Japanese—and they're based in Milan, to boot—but they've gone French for the first product of their design studio, subverting the old cliché: "Let them eat cake." Rui Pereira and Ryosuke Fukusada have given new meaning to the notion of 'good taste' in furniture with their furniture cakes, a comment on "how consumers are unable to digest the huge amount of new products that companies are launching each year."
To that end, they've created a waffle-press-style mold for tiny cakes... shaped like furniture.
Hungry for more?
Alas, the mouthwatering miniature furnishings were only eye candy—Pereira and Fukusada had some technical difficulties at the show, so we didn't have the chance to try any of their precious treats.
They're looking for a manufacturer as they work out the final details... any takers? If so, check out Sapore dei Mobili at Via Massimiliano 6 through April 22.
