Gavin Keightley's Terraform furniture is cast in moulds made from food






Designer Gavin Keightley used foods including mashed potato and jelly to create moulds for this furniture collection, which is cast from Jesmonite dyed in fluorescent hues.
The furniture collection, comprising two cabinets and a series of stools, features components made from plaster and Jesmonite that were cast in moulds fabricated from different foods.
