'Sapore dei Mobili' (Furniture Tasting) is a project by two young designers, Ryosuke Fukusada (from Japan) and Rui Pereira (from Portugal), that have created a furniture pan to make amazing mini cakes: it's 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 they've created a new typology of object and at the same time a new tradition: with this pan you can create your edible living room and paint you furniture cakes with your favorite jams and toppings.
Presented at 2012 Milan Design Week, the 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", have explained the desiners: "For this Salone we propose an alternative way of experiencing furniture."
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
