Sugar and spice and all things nice that's what chairs can be made of...
This brilliant chair designed by Pieter Brenner is made entirely of sugar - that is one hell of a sugar rush. It got me thinking though; is there more furniture out there made from foodstuffs?
Funnily enough I couldn't really find much. These however are the few I found. Some more appealing to the eye than others (pun intended)!

1. This chair is actually made from a potato. A real, dug up from the field, dried out and carved potato. The designer Gert Eussen uses the potato chairs as models for the real people sized thing which is made of bio-plastic. Read more over here.
2. This incredible eco-chair from the clever people at Re-worked is made from recycled coffee grounds and post-consumer plastic waste. The legs are made from salvaged wood. The coffee is sourced from cafes, offices and factories. The plastic waste we're talking about is the stuff that is tricky to recycle like refrigerators. A pretty amazing product. Courtesy of their website, here is the concept:
Can you find any other food to furniture examples? I'd love to see them.
