Muffin pouffe by Matteo Bianchi
Italian designer Matteo Bianchi has just revealed the first piece from his first collection. And what a first this was! The designer chose a bold design that not only impressed everyone but it also showed his talent. He created the “muffin pouffe”. As the name suggests, this is a pouf or stool shaped like a muffin.
In theory it doesn’t sound like much but when you see the actual product you heart melts. The muffin pouffe is very close to the delicious treat in terms of shape and looks. It was a very good representation of the famous muffin and not everyone could turn that into a piece of furniture.
The muffin pouffe was presented at TENT London 2011. It’s basically a leather cushioned stool shaped like a muffin. It’s hand made using Italian materials and it’s also equipped with a hidden storage compartment. Just remove the muffin top as you do with the treat and there it is.
This was actually a very clever idea. And since every muffin is different and when you buy them you get choose from different ingredients, here you also get to choose the different type of wood for the base, the buttons and the soft leather, as well as the color. Make your own muffin as you like it. It’s a very fun and quirky piece of furniture and because of the cute design it would also be a nice choice for the kids’ room.
