SWEET SABA BY MAAYAN ZILBERMAN
NOVEMBER 11 - FEBRUARY 23, 2015
Maayan Zilberman, founder and designer of candy line Sweet Saba, will be running a sugar crystal shop on the third floor M bar. Maayan is creating an alien library of edible candy and chewing gum inspired by chakra and birthstones that are thought to have healing qualities. During workshops, customers can watch Maayan at her counter making candy from scratch and testing ingredients. This mystical shop will be exclusive for the holidays, offering people a way to restore themselves through fun sweet things just in time for the New Year.
Maayan Zilberman was for many years a lingerie designer, previously co-founding the line The Lake & Stars. With her focus on intimacy, sci-fi, and sensory experience, in 2014 she created Sweet Saba, Hebrew after her grandpa with whom she used to perform science experiments with in the kitchen. This specialty line of edible candy objects cast off real items from her past. Maayan also works with a flavor scientist to pair each shape with an unexpected taste.
