It’s hard to explain what French and Japanese duo Sayaka Kaneko and Charlotte Sitbon do because their work is so unique and special. Charlotte is an ex-graphic designer inspired by jewelry while Sakaya brings the delicate subtleties of Japanese cuisine. Together they’re the creative minds behind Balboste, a Paris based studio that creates visually pleasing foods married with fine craftsmanship. Their sculptural and artistic creations can be seen in everything like vegetables carved into seashells and handcrafted edible crystals. See for yourselves.
