Modenus Tim tweeted ‘Bake Me A Cake’ by Northern Lighting from the Stockholm Furniture Fair but we thought it deserved a wider audience.
Designed by Morten and Jonas, Bake Me a Cake is made by the inmates in a Norwegian prison close to Bergen. The project is intended to create meaningful activities for inmates while challenging their ways of thinking and acting. The lamp’s name references the classic story about baking cakes, with hidden files, for prisoners. And indeed, the example we saw in Stockholm did include a file, but no cake.
