This lovely bakery located in St. Kilda Victoria, Australia was designed by March Studio. The whole wood structure reminds me of the topography of a piece of bread and that concrete wall of a stone that is used to back the bread on to get that lovely crust.

33 RPM, by Stockholm based photographer Philip Karlberg, is a photo series showing food installations in motion. Each dish is mounted onto a record which is put into motion by a underlying turntable. I truly enjoy looking at those dishes this way. It reminds me of the way one looks at food served in a restaurant by checking it out from side to side before eating it. To see more of this particular series, go here. and if you want to listen to the playlist of the records used in the pictures, go here.

Alice is a ceramic cast tea service from fabric moulds by Israeli designer Rachel Boxnboim. “The ceramic takes on the texture of the fabric and the appearance of the seams, and looks like a kind of hardened textile.” I totally love it. If you want to see a short making of, click here.

When was the last time you emphatically broke something? The ceramic salt & pepper shaker FRAGILE, by Studio Kahn, offers you the opportunity to do so! The product comes in one piece and by breaking it, you make it useful. Breaking is an experience of impulsive outburst but this time is an act that builds rather than destroys.

beet cake from tiger in a jar on Vimeo.

I haven’t posted anything food related for a while, but when I saw this little film I felt that I had to share it.
“There is something beautiful about the baking process. The way flour feels in your hands or the sound of eggs cracking on the edge of a bowl. Baking is a gathering of interesting materials, a mixed medium art piece of sorts, that ends in a cake instead of a canvas.”

As most of you know, coffeeproduction is based around the equator. But øWorks (øystein helle husby) wanted to make the Nordic coffee. Not through the production of coffee beans, but through the users experience of making the coffee. The design would be their tool. So, what distinguishes nordic design? Wood, they thought.
