STUDIO LAV-DESIGNER BAKING
Fashion meets baking. Designer Baking is a two-piece set of kitchen stamps that will transform everyday bread, cookies and pies into small ‘haute couture’ baking marvels. Combining fashion with baking, the project is a response to the initiative from the Skoufa Gallery in Athens, Greece which invited designers to develop and re-imagine the essence of ‘folklore’ into a contemporary form where olive tree wood had to feature as the main material used. Bread in particular has always been the basic ingredient for most daily meals in the Balkans. Bread decoration varies from stamping to complex sculptural forms that often signify different social events (weddings, spiritual offerings etc.).
