Hiromi Taki and Tomonori Ohata, the design duo known as Switch, created these glass food covers. Each was designed for a specific type of snack – onigiri (rice ball), shu cream (cream puff) and a slice of cake – and debuted last year in the Oyatsu Dougu exhibition, a show dedicated to showcasing tools and accessories related to my favorite meal, snack time. They were hand-blown by Sayaka Kanazu, a craftswoman based in Toyama.
I love how these covers elevate the simple snack to an almost sacred status. As if it’s on object of worship.
The Oyatsu Dougu exhibition was a show sponsored and curated by Codomonocoto, a group that organizes kid-friendly workshops and events, as well as commissions designers to create kid-centric products such as cowakka. The show originally ran in May of 2010, but then traveled on to Shinjuku Isetan department store in conjunction with DesignTide Extension.
