21 Inedible Donut Finds

From Paper-Crafted Pinwheels to Curved Cuisine Cutters

— June 3, 2012 — Art & Design
Highlighting the ever-present nature of the circular delicious good, these inedible donut finds are as tempting as the dessert that inspired them.

Their shape, which proves to be quite useful in terms of design, is their defining feature and the reason for which their shape is so ubiquitous. Often influential in architecture, the donut shape can really make a huge impact in terms of the way people understand their world visually. Other times, the outline lends a cute factor to otherwise lifeless products. No matter what the appropriation, the donut shape is an inevitable design.

From water toys to coffee cups, the ways in which this shape manifests itself into everyday goods are pretty much endless.
