Abadir Design Students Reinvent Popsicles

With a set number of molds on the market, popsicles only come in a few different shapes and sizes. However, in a workshop led by Andrea Signoretto at the Abadir fine arts academy in Catania, Italy, design students were challenged to reimagine the basic shape of an ice pop, thinking of them as "a form supported by a stick." By doing this, slight changes to the conventional popsicle shape create totally new forms that are way more fun.

Creations from the group of 20 Abadir students turn popsicles into unusual shapes like glasses, bubbles and cubed forms that look more like edible pieces of architecture than the look of frozen treats we're accustomed to. Popsicles are pretty delightful on their own, but these quirky ice pop shapes are even more of a treat. Stats for Playfully Shaped Popsicles Trending: This Quarter & Average
