What Food Additives Really Look Like & More Design Links We Love

February 26, 2016

What food additives really look like—and more design links we loved this week.

A new book called Ingredients is a photographic foray into the world of food additives (like what's in a Klondike bar, above left, and a zoom-in on caffeine, above right), and is a collaboration between photographer Dwight Eschliman and pop-science writer Steve Ettlinger. (New York Times)

Even though it makes us a little sad when stacks of books are made unusable because they're used to prop up so many other things (we're lookin' at you, coffee table covered in so many art books you can't get to them), as tiny little side tables, we're digging the idea. (Apartment 34)

In a very real case of life imitating art, the Art Institute of Chicago designed a room to look exactly like Van Gogh's iconic painting, Bedroom, and posted it for rent on AirBnb (the rate's $10 per night). (Swiss Miss)
