A Baked Project

Baked is a project from product design collective FormaFantasma (two Italian designers based in Eindhoven), it was comissioned during Dutch Design Week.  While researching for their thesis project, they decided to try out mixing kitchen ingridients in their collection of vases, such as flower, salt, coffee and channel to simulate earthenware colour. After baking in the oven, the result was beautiful - A material better than bio-plastic, easy to make.  It is totaly sustainable - the colors are obtained filtering and boiling different natural products such as paprika, spinach, blueberries, coffee. It needs low-temperature baking (50-70 degree), it is 100% biodegradable and the material doesn’t corrupt because of the use of spices and salt as natural preservative.  Great design by accident?
