Old Mattresses Become Pizza, Sushi, And More


As something of an amateur mattress-spotter myself, I was thrilled to read about street artist lor-K‘s innovative sculptural project in Paris. As Designboom reports, she deconstructs and augments tossed-away bedding materials, turning these soggy raw materials into oversized culinary items that Claes Oldenburg might approve of. This perverse alchemy turns unwanted mattresses into pizza, sushi, kebabs, sandwiches, and other assorted goodies best admired from afar.
