Beautiful Bread Lamps Straight From the Bakery

Art Technology Design Bread

Japanese artist Yukiko Morita always loved bread. Not only is it delicious but there's something about that special combination of flour and yeast that produced wonderful flavors, beautiful tones and adorable shapes that make people feel warm inside. This profound passion for pan (Japanese for bread and was borrowed from Portuguese) eventually led Morita down a unique path that combined lighting design and baking. And yes, each lamp is made from actual bread and is preserved in a coating of resin!

You can read more about Morita and her pan project here. For more pictures of these loaf lamps, head to Spoon & Tamago via the link below.
