The nice people of Forsman & Bodenfors have send me some more info on the IKEA “Hembakat är Bäst” baking book. It’s actually a 140 pages coffee-table book, containing 30 classic swedish baking recipes. They were inspired by high fashion and japanese minimalism and decided to put the ingredients in focus. The recipes are presented as graphic still-life portraits on a warm and colourful stage.
You can find all the photos of the ingredients, the biscuits/cakes and the credits here.
In 2003, Florian Jenett and Valentin Beinroth placed about 50 handgun replicas in downtown Frankfurt. The guns were made from tinted ice, making them look real at first sight.
In 2009 they did a new edition of their Freeze! project but made the guns eatable edible by using coke, licorice, cherry and food coloring.

Here’re a few stills from the video.
And here is an other video called Cakes. It’s the same idea, but a compilation of 6 girls each eating a cake.

Almost 3 weeks ago, Yuri Suzuki and Masa Kimura started to build the Breakfast Machine during Platform21 = Jamming in Amsterdam. The machine is a Rube Goldberg machine which can serve you an omelet, coffee and a toast with jam.
Yuri and Masa invited other designers and the public to help build and design the machine. They’ve used recycled remnants of previous Platform21 projects to solve all the different problems to get to their goal.
Last weekend the machine was ready and served all-day breakfasts to the visitors.
This video is actually in Dutch but you can see the Breakfast Machine in action.
Here are 2 short video of early tests. The first one is a test for the Egg Machine, the second for the Tea Machine.
