These Edible Popsicles Double As Art
Food as art has long been a favorite medium of photographers and designers. The latest in this food porn trend is Nuna — a designer popsicle. After checking out these ice pops created by architect Manu Kumar and designer Stefan Gandl on Fast Co Design, we simply can’t wait until summer to try one. We’d like a geo-pop now, please and thank you.
Not only Nuna’s flavors developed by chef Heiko Antoniewicz to be delicious, but the ice is shaped in beautiful geometric designs and then attached to a sustainable bamboo stick. The flavors have names like N71, N51 and N65… not that appetizing and yet we still want one (or three). Guess it’s just a testament to how we all eat with our eyes before we eat with our mouths.
The popsicles were featured in a food exhibit at Italy’s Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rovereto — but now we’re wondering where these artists are going to start selling the molds so that we can all make them at home. Perhaps a new Brit + Co DIY project is in the cards…
If you can remember what summer feels like, what’s your go-to favorite popsicle flavor? Let us know in the comments.
