Furniture that is so good you could eat it...but please don't

Warning: do not browse Matthias Borowski’s candy-inspired creations when hungry. Why? Because the Design Academy Eindhoven graduate’s visually scrumptious assortment of objects are sadly inedible. Indeed, his Importance of the Obvious collection looks like it jumped straight from the pages of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but, alas, is not very tasty. To achieve the drool-inducing realism, Borowski played with ordinary materials like foam, plastic and wood, pushing the boundaries of normal usage and credibly transforming foam into powdered sugar and wood into bits of almond. Just look at that hunk of nougat-like goodness! We couldn’t think of a sweeter furniture treat.
