Hot Milk Micro Lab
The lab-style design comprises a series of glass vessels that sit on platters made from beech wood. A jug with an integrated thermometer is suspended over a candle to heat the milk, while a selection of round vessels contain various ingredients, such as chillies and star anise for flavouring the drink.
"After studying milk itself, I discovered that its chemical composition of water and protein makes it an ideal vehicle for suspending flavours and nutrients," Bergne told design publication Dezeen. "So the potential is there to develop milk as a drink way beyond the classic chocolate milk."
The exhibit was created for the Milk Lab exhibition in Paris, which will take place at La Milk Factory from May 29 to June 30 2015.
As previously discussed in Elevating the Everyday, we're seeing a number of designers, product developers and restaurateurs transform everyday ingredients – from tinned fish to porridge – into coveted items. Amsterdam's pop-up bar De MelkSalon offers patrons a selection of five different milks served in handmade porcelain cups, while new London eatery 26 Grains offers a menu centred around grain-based dishes.
