In the summer of 2012 we drove up to Weil am Rhein (DE) to transform the Zaha Hadid Firestation at the Vitra campus into a bakery.
With the professional help of master baker Fritz Trefzger we produced 2500 bastard buns plus love sentences made from bread on a fragile installation of hundreds of metal pins to cover the walls of the station.
The main sentence was: ‘Hello gorgeous, I’m still wearing the smile you gave me’
The Vitra campus is located in Germany right between Switzerland and France.
At the night of the Vitra Campus summer party, these three countries made love and conceived a mixed bread of the 3 iconic breads that stand for the specific country: German dark sourdough, French Baguette and
Swiss sweet Zopf bread.
The baby bastard is shaped to share. Bread is at the base of
most cultures. It is pure existence of textures moulded into various shapes and completed with fire.
