Coffee art

Like many creative, 27 year old Bologna fine arts graduate Giulia Bernardelli finds inspiration in coffee and tea. However, she takes a slightly alternative approach by transforming her brew into beautiful, if temporary, pieces of art. You can see more of her work (and some gorgeous looking food) on her Instagram. 

Cold Brew Tea

On the theme of beverages, we’ve started to notice the rise of cold brew tea, as it contains less caffeine and acid. Though there is plenty of debate around whether cold is better tasting (our Yorkshire staff members would be disgusted by the idea…), we can expect to see this new form of tea start to make an appearance in artisan cafes and store shelves.

Sebastian Errazuriz

New York-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz came to our attention because of his visually arresting piece of furniture, ‘The Wave Cabinet’ Composed of 100 Baltic birchwood slats, the engineered cabinet can be configurated into multiple undulating shapes. Each slat is joined to the ones surrounding it to allow the cabinet to open and close in any direction in a wave-like motion. 

Kromkommer

With waste food becoming an increasingly topical subject in the sustainability debate, we were intrigued by dutch soup brand, Kromkommer. The brand was founded with the mission to save all the fruits and veggies that otherwise would have been wasted because of their looks or overproduction, and is instead made into it’s range of three soups.
