French artist lor-K has come up with a unique use for discarded mattresses in Paris – oversized street food sculptures. Part of an ongoing project called ‘eat me’, the surprisingly realistic food effigies include a slice of pizza, waffles and cream, sandwiches, kebabs, sushi, cupcakes and a selection of French patisseries.

Using a diverse set of techniques, the mattresses are sliced up, spray painted and reassembled into the pleasing food art. Left in their original position, passersby can appreciate the work and build up an appetite instead of looking at the fly-tipped cushions.
