Architectural Baking Stamps by Way of Studiolav

What happens when two designers integrate textile patterns into the bakery?

Loukas Angelou and Vasso Asfi are the creative minds behind London-based design collaborative Studiolav. They recently designed a two-piece set of kitchen stamps for the creation of artful baked goods. The idea was initiated by the Skoufa Gallery of Athens, Greece, who asked designers to re-imagine the meaning of "folklore" using olive tree wood as the main material. To learn more, visit Studiolav.
