Matthias Borowski, one half of studio Kollektiv Plus Zwei, designed the collection of candy-like objects that can be used as seats and tables for his thesis, titled The Importance of the Obvious.
Borowski experimented with a range of materials before he achieved the sugary effect. He found that plastics could be manipulated and layered up to create the different patterns found in sweets. Also the artificial look of the material provided an apt analogy for the synthetic additives that go into confectionary.
"When I researched candies I realised the material is often very artificial and plastic is in my opinion a good equivalent," Borowski said.
