Tools of the Trade September 28, 2007

Posted by goodmind in Function Follows Form.


Every good baker possesses the proper tools of the trade, but until now, one couldn’t actually bake tools of a trade.  Fortunately, metal goods manufacturer Hugo Bräuer has stepped in to address this matter, offering a series of six industrial themed aluminum baking pans.  The “tools you bake” are directly borrowed from the “hundreds of wooden moulds, used in the making of hubcaps, lids or shades” produced throughout the 100 year history of the company.    

In addition to all of the obvious reasons, we love the idea of making a hubcap cake because it is the perfect instance of Function Follows Form.  It takes a special mind to translate an industrial wooden mould into a baking pan with MoMA credentials, but once it’s been done, its actually more shocking that no one thought of it before.
