Pierre Roelofs and Cindy-Lee Davies are collaborating on the latest iteration of “Dessert Studies”, a series of inspired dining experiences in Melbourne, for three nights in July.
For the past seven years, Roelofs has created a new dessert every three weeks by collaborating with creatives to interpret architecture, design and illustration into dessert.
On July 7, 14 and 21 at Milkwood Café in East Brunswick, Davies and Roelofs will bring to life “Desert Dessert”, an interpretation of Lightly’s Desert Days rug collection.
The new Desert Days collection of flat weave wool rugs by Davies recent travels to the Thar Desert, India. Designs reference the stone forts contrast against the blue architecture throughout the desert landscape of Rajasthan.
Each rug is made by artisans in villages that Lightly now supports. Production took six months using custom hand dyed colours, reflecting the craftsmanship involved in each hand woven piece.
Book now at www.pierreroelofs.com for an evening of desert dessert with a Ravi Shankar soundtrack.
