Rolling pins that make edible plates

Altered Appliances is a collection of four projects by students from Rotterdam’s Piet Zwart Institute, introducing low-tech, hand-powered appliances and ideas to the kitchen.

One project being exhibited in Milan this week is patterned rolling pins that make edible plates.

‘Rollware is a set of laser-cut rolling pins designed as a tool for the production of bread-based edible dishware, which are adorned with customised and useful patterns. The sustainable products merge traditional crafts, tableware production and cooking with digital technology.’

‘Rollware plates are edible tableware that plays an active and surprising role in the eating and dining experience. The design and making is a simple production line, each step adds a key element to the final product.’
