This project is about developing sweet products which quote a certain time by shape, colour or touch – a reference to sweet nostalgia, the topic for the exhibition at the ISM International Sweet Fair at Koelnmesse.
Together with 25 other students from eleven countries we started this project with discussions and thoughts about the definition nostalgia. After figuring out our task was to bring the meaning of nostalgia in to „a candy form“. I developed many concepts and prototypes within the process and ended with the idea of a kaleidoscope.
The Candyscope is a kaleidoscope filled with candy, which satisfy the inquiring mind and the urge to explore of each child.
Self-selected candies of various colors and shapes result different and unique patterns, visible through the kaleidoscope. For this, the sweets are simply filled in the top part of the Candyscope and mixed to give different looks. If a few sweets were eaten, it occur again completely new pictures: a sweet „magically gadget“ which offers unique, wonderful moments for everyone.
