“Our Daily Bread” explores the more social aspect of this very familiar foodstuff. Over the course of a week, the designers were transformed into bakers – but bakers with a particular interest in the contexts, situations and behaviours related to bread.
London designers Héctor Serrano Studio have sent us images of objects created in a workshop about bread, which they directed for industrial design graduates at the University Cardenal Herrera in Valencia, Spain.

The workshop aimed to generate designs based on social observations.
Above: Ñam! by Alberto Silla Morales. This project stems from the past: like many other children, whenever I was sent to buy the bread I always used to break the end off to eat, as it was first thing in the morning and I hadn’t had breakfast yet. When I got home my mother always told me off because I’d made a mess of the baguette by ripping off the end. With this baguette, based on a completely standard one, children can pull off the knob end just like before, but this time without destroying the baguette.

It provides a large amount of carbohydrates, proteins and fibre which are ideal for optimum nutrition. This concept offers babies something healthy to eat while playing and something to bite on when their new teeth are emerging.
