This photograph of the play area in Cheery Creek Shopping Centre, Denver, US shows furniture inspired by different types of foods, particularly those you'd expect to see on a breakfast menu. When you can play around with giant rashers of bacon, or lounge on fried eggs, who would want to go shopping?

Implications - Though most people spent their childhood hearing how bad playing with their food was, today's society embraces edible play. Ultimately, today's pleasure-obsessed consumers are looking to enjoy eating as a gratifying experience instead of something that is a simple necessity to survival. Thus, the food and design industries are slowly combining, with food used as an aesthetic style.
