exhibition Milan December 2008
project 5b - biscuits forms
We liked the idea to use a very old tradition and "refresh" the motives by using contemporary design icons.
These have been and still are traditional Christmas cookies in Bavaria, Swabia and Austria for centuries. Springerle cookies originated in the German province of Swabia in the 15th century. They are white, anise-flavored cookies, made from a simple egg-flour-sugar dough. Usually rectangular or circular in shape, they have a picture or design stamped on the top. The images are imprinted with flat molds (Springerle presses, or boards).
