Todd von Bastiaans discusses his pancakes with care and taste. Influenced by the Pony Chair by Eero Aarnio, Todd wanted to create a similar functional art item that was also practical and multipurpose. Along with Bryan McCarthy he developed a series of tempur-pedic foam filled pancake floor pillows that are straight out of Pop iconography. Research was intensive on the project, with the duo trying pancakes from numerous Las Vegas breakfast joints- Jerry’s Nugget, Dupar’s, IHOP- before deciding on Blueberry Hill. The final decision, of course, was based on the aesthetic appeal of the pancakes themselves. Images were then transferred to fabric via digital printing and a 36” comfy pancake series was made.
Put a stack of them in the room and use them to watch TV or read a book.
